So what is ultimately the connection between Mary and Wisdom? I remember reading that Slavic churches dedicated to Wisdom (Sophia) often have Marian feast days, which is not insignificant. Also, I recently read this interesting hymn from the Lamentations of the Dormition of the Theotokos:
Which clearly relates Mary with Wisdom - either identifying her person with Wisdom, or saying that Wisdom dwells within her. Do the non-English original(s) also refer to Wisdom in the feminine? If so (depending on the language, of course), that might mean the former is the case rather than the latter. Regardless of which, it's still a significant association.7. Wisdom now has moved
from her dwelling place on earth to heaven.
and has filled her heavenly mansion there
with the glory that has come from God above.
