Where Did The Virgin Mary Live After The Crucifixion?

The Virgin Mary left Jerusalem after the Crucifixion. The Church learnt of Mary's final refuge and home only because a nun saw it in a Vision.

On top of “Bulbuldagi” or “Mountain Nightingale” and 9 kilometers from the ruins at Ephesus, sits a small stone cottage holy to both Christians and Muslims. The cottage is believed to be the last home of the Virgin Mary and is now a recognized and finally accepted shrine. The shrine draws Christians and Muslims alike. Christians visit the house because of its associations with a deeply revered figure in Christianity - The Virgin Mary. Muslims hold Virgin Mary in deep religious regard as the mother of Jesus - a Prophet of Islam.

Virgin Mary's House

The small and austere cottage is believed to have played an important role in the life of Virgin Mary. The shrine has been visited by three Popes and has been conferred official recognition as a place for pilgrimage. The cottage was largely unknown to official Christianity till 1811 when a German nun saw the cottage in a vision. She recalled the biblical references to the Virgin Mary leaving Jerusalem after the resurrection accompanied by the Apostle John. In her vision, the nun saw the small cottage and described in detail the features she had seen in her vision. The vision and the cottage were described in a publication but did not receive official recognition of the cottage as a shrine. The discovery of the cottage and the story of how it acquired the status of a shrine makes interesting reading. These details were picked up nearly 100 years later, by a French researcher - a priest who was searching for the cottage in the hills around Ephesus. The cottage was well-known as the House of the Virgin Mary to the people of the area who had always regarded the structure as a Holy Place. They knew The Virgin Mary had found refuge here and this was where she had lived till her death at age 64. Locally, the cottage was an established shrine where an annual pilgrimage took place every August 15 - the date of Mary’s Assumption. Finally, John Paul II visited the cottage in the 1980 and declared the Shrine a place of pilgrimage.

There is some very interesting info about Mary here:

The Mystical City of God, The Divine History and Life of The Virgin Mother of God
The private revelations of Sister Mary of Jesus, Superioress of the convent of the Immaculate Conception of the town of Agreda, of the province of Burgos in Spain, under obedience to the regular observance of the seraphic father Saint Francis, for new enlightenment of the world, for rejoicing of the Catholic Church, and the encouragement of men.
Life of The Virgin Mary


Here is the version by Emmerich:
The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary

I love this stuff. It makes the Gospels (and history) more tangible for me.

This is our Lady of Ephesus:



Here is a picture of the actual house:



and I believe the nun in the story is Sr. Anne Catherine Emmerich. The same who wrote "The Delores Passion of Christ" that the Hollywood movie - "The Passion of Christ" was patterned after.

I have heard Fr. Pakwa doubt this is credible. I think tradition holds that Mary lived in the hills around Jerusalem after Jesus ascended and that her dormition was there.

It seems rather hard to dig up anything on-line to support that though. Other than the existence of Mary's tomb mentioned in the CE.
