"Maria Magdalena" (English translation: "Mary Magdalene") was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1993, performed in German by Tony Wegas.

The song was performed tenth on the night (following Iceland's Inga with "Þá veistu svarið" and preceding Portugal's Anabela with "A cidade (até ser dia)"). At the close of voting, it had received 32 points, placing 14th in a field of 25.

The song is about the Biblical character Mary Magdalene, and Wegas asks her to "give me your power", before explaining that she has played a greater role in mythology and history than others had suspected.

The song was succeeded as Austrian representative at the 1994 Contest by Petra Frey singing Für den Frieden der Welt.
