Noli Me Tangere is a Spanish-language novel written by José Rizal, and published in 1887, in Europe. The title is Latin, and means "touch me not." Rizal took these words from the Bible, specifically the Gospel of St. John 20: 13-17, which described how lepers were made to wear signs bearing these same words to warn passers-by of their condition. The novel is commonly referred to by its shortened name Noli; the English translation is often titled The Social Cancer. "Touch me not" was what Jesus said to Mary Magdalene when He rose from the dead. In the gospel of John, Jesus said this because He was not yet done with his mission (rising from the dead, and then seeing the Father) and hence, can not be touched. ...more on Wikipedia about "Noli Me Tangere (novel)"
