(1) The daughter of Herod Philip and Herodias (Matthew 14:6-8: Mark 6:22; cf.
Antiq. Jud., XVIII, v, 4), at whose request John the Baptist was
(2) One of the holy women present at the Crucifixion,
and who visited the tomb on the morning of the Resurrection (Mark 15:40; 16:1).
In Mark 15:40, we read:
And there were also women looking on afar off: among
whom was Mary Magdalen, and Mary the Mother of James the Less and of Joseph, and
Salome. The parallel passage of Matthew reads thus:
Among whom was Mary
Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of
Zebedee (Matthew 27:56). Comparison of the two gives a well-grounded
probability that the Salome of the former is identical with the mother of the
sons of Zebedee in the latter, who is mentioned also in Matthew 20:20 sq., in
connection with the petition in favour of her sons. Beyond these references in
the Gospel narrative and what may be inferred from them nothing is known of
Salome, though some writers conjecture more or less plausibly that she is the
sister of the Blessed Virgin mentioned in John 19:25.
