ENG: Mary (Hebrew: Miriam; Aramaic: Maryam; Arabic:, Maryam), commonly referred to as "Saint Mary", "Mother Mary", the "Virgin Mary", the "Blessed Virgin Mary", or "Mary, Mother of God", was a Jewish woman of Nazareth in Galilee. She is identified in the New Testament and in the Quran as the mother of Jesus through divine intervention.

CZ: Panna Maria, nekdy též Marie, je v krestanství a islámu matka Ježíše z Nazareta, snoubenka tesare Josefa. Maria je u katolíku a pravoslavných predmetem obzvláštní úcty, v podstate je chápána jako první mezi svetci. Existuje celá rada poutních míst, která jsou spojena se zjeveními ci zázraky Panny Marie a jsou hojne navštevována.
