Magdalene is a song from Silent Hill 2. It is track 15 in the Silent Hill 2 soundtrack and was composed by Akira Yamaoka. It plays after Maria dies in Brookhaven Hospital and will continue to play until James Sunderland exits the building.
- "Magdalene" is most likely a reference to St. Mary Magdalene, a renowned disciple of Jesus Christ. There are a few similarities between Maria and Mary Magdalene:
- Mary Magdalene was the first to discover Jesus had been resurrected, something that could be tied into Maria's own "resurrection".
- Mary Magdalene was very frequently (but fallaciously) confused with the anonymous sinner mentioned in Luke 7:36-50, said to be a repentant prostitute, which led to one of her patronages being sexual temptation, a massive focus in the game.
- Mary Magdalene's name can also be translated as "Maria". This ties to both Maria and Mary Shepherd-Sunderland.
