According to Florentine medieval manuscripts analysed by a historian, the great-grandmother of Jesus is supposed to be a woman named Saint Ismeria.
“Saint Ismeria likely served as a role model for older women during the 14th and 15th centuries”, claims a lecturer in Catholic Ireland.
The legend of Saint Ismeria sheds light on both the Biblical Virgin Mary’s family and also on religious and cultural values of 14th century Florence.
“I don’t think any other woman is mentioned” as Mary’s grandmother in the Bible, Ms Catherine Lawless, the paper’s author, said. “Mary’s patrilineal lineage is the only one giv-en,” Discovery News quoted Ms Lawless as saying.
“Mary herself is mentioned very little in the Bible,” added Ms Lawless, a lecturer in history at the University of Limerick.“ The huge Marian cult that has evolved over centuries has very few scriptural sources,” she said.
The legend of Saint Ismeria has been published in the current Journal of Medieval History.

I will not be very surprised if Catholics in Ireland soon starts to pray to the “Holy great grand mother of God”.
The Marian cult inside the Catholic Church, leads people into not Biblical worship of the earthly ancestors of Jesus. Like the claimed to be grandmother if Jesus, St. Ann. Now a “super revelation” has revealed a great grandmother of Jesus named Ismeria.
While Jesus warned us not to worship of pay any special attention to his earthly family, this cult is of a different opinion.
The Catholic Church have thousands of claimed to be saints, and may also tell the Papists to venerate the grand uncle of Jesus, and make him a “holy man”. In the Church, such figures are included in the “Holy family”.
The only once left out of a Catholic family, beaten and excommunicated are “believers”. Those who believe in every word written in the Bible, and correctly claim the Vatican is the head of the biggest cult on Earth.
Someone told him, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you.”
He replied to him, “Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?” Pointing to his disciples, he said, “Here are my mother and my brothers. For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.”
