The Godly Child

The Appearance of the Lord

It was the early Church that first proclaimed the two-fold nature of the Redeemer: Christ is God and man in one. His childhood history reveals his human side. Aspects of everyday life increasingly found their way into art thus making the history of salvation easier to comprehend. In a simple cowshed, far from any earthly splendour, the redemption of mankind had its beginning.
