He didn't.
It was just another disciple.
Sir Laurence Gardner was an art historian who worked as a restorer of old works before he became famous.
The Last Supper was severely damaged and painted over a lot in the course of its history.
You can find the details-with photographs-in one of his books, The Magdalene Legacy I think.

Thete was a doc on youtube expaining but now I cant remember what it,was called. Lol. Something about each disciple represented a sign in the zodiac.
Mary Mag is the goddess, the source of all life. Jesus is the light, the life force that moves through all things, the central sun, alcyone.
It was something like that....esoteric gnosis hidden in plain view.

Look at everybodys facial expression.

Jesus talks about, death, betrayal, plot and love.

She was his most beloved apostle and she knows it!

And John conforms it.


John 19
25 But there were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 Therefore when Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold your son!”

[link to www.newdawnmagazine.com]

It is stated in The Da Vinci Code that, in this 1954 restoration, The Last Supper was “cleaned down to Da Vinci’s original layer of paint” – but this is completely untrue. At that time it was reckoned that only one-fifth of Leonardo’s original was left intact, but it was all obliterated beneath the overpainting of numerous successive restoration attempts. All Pelliccoli did was to clean the surface and treat the work against mildew.

Not until 1978 was a proper restoration commissioned to be undertaken by the renowned conservator of masterworks, Dr. Pinin Brambilla Barcilon. This renovation took a full twenty years, during which the mural was not on view to the public. It was finally unveiled in 1999, but the source reference for Dan Brown’s novel in this regard was written five years earlier, and was not based on The Last Supper painting as it exists today.

From 1999 the mural has indeed been stripped down to Leonardo’s original paint, and the items cited in The Da Vinci Code to denote a woman in place of the apostle John do not exist. The neck-chain, for example, turned out to be a crack in the wall. The supposed formation of breasts on the figure was caused by black stucco marks from an early attempt at adhering the plaster. In addition to this, Leonardo’s preparatory drawing for the figure in question is at the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan, and is positively captioned ‘John’, while Leonardo’s two known portrayals of Mary Magdalene have nothing whatever in common with the apostolic figure in The Last Supper.

You should not need therapy. They are just fiction. Adventure stories. When you read stuff like that you are supposed to suspend disbelief to be entertained. Just like when you watch James Bond movies. We all know it is not real. If he wanted to tell people it was real, he would have written a scholarly thesis with proof.

Considering da Vinci didn't put the Magdalene in the painting any answer at this point is bound to be intriguing.

Re: Why did Leonardo Da Vinci put Mary Magdalene in the painting of the last supper the way he did?
I started this thread, not because I support Dan Brown to all trash talking people on here, but because to me it would seem that Mary being the first disciple would have had her book in the bible as well.
[link to www.gnosis.org]
See witnessed all the things all the other disciples did and was just as important, but why not included her?
Maybe her story would have been to much knowledge for us to know at that time?
Just to get feed back from all the other Christians on here was my basis.

So to all you trash talkers taking this the wrong way, put a dirty sock in it and bite down really hard.

Thanks to all who collaborated with the main subject.

so it would appeal to both men and women. Very few ladies would just like to see a pic of a few guys hanging out. They wouldn't believe anything they said without a female being present to verify it. And they knew that no women are asked over for boys nights...so it would mean that it was more of a community spirited thing...instead of a male bonding thing.

The main subject was why did da Vinci put Mary Magdalene in the painting.
He didn't.
The actual verifiable evidence is there-photographs of the painting being stripped down and then restored by experts.
So what really is your point?
Really?
That non-evidence IS evidence of something else?
