A makar is a term from Scottish literature for a poet or bard, often thought of as a royal court poet, although the term can be more generally applied. The word functions in a manner similar to the Greek term ποιητής which means both maker and poet.

Of course the Bible wasn’t around then, Mary probably couldn’t read or write and certainly wouldn’t have possessed anything as precious as a book; they were for Kings, Queens and those of importance, not for a peasant girl. However to highlight how important Mary was, she is often shown in clothes, wearing jewellery, in a home, which would not have been her reality.
