The Presentation of Christ

Presentation of Christ-Magi before Herod-Santa Maria Maggiore, from Art in the Christian Tradition, a project of the Vanderbilt Divinity Library, Nashville, TN. http://diglib.library.vanderbilt.edu/act-imagelink.pl?RC=54004 [retrieved December 6, 2013]. Original source: From the library of Lee M. Jefferson. Notes from the library page: This is on the arch of the church and contains several interesting portrayals. Christ is presented with angels, greeted by David dressed in royal garb, asserting Christ’s kingly nature. The bejeweled female figure is possibly Mary or Sarah. Below the Magi in their unique garb greet Herod, above a representation of the birth city Bethlehem.
