Feast of the Visitation Through The Eyes of Art History


This day is called the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary because on it Mary visited her cousin Elizabeth, whom, as the angel had told her, God had blessed with a son in her old age.

In the Introit of the Mass the Church sings:

“Hail, holy parent, who didst bring truth the King Who rules heaven and earth forever. My heart hath uttered a good word; I speak of my works for the King.”

The painting on the left is by  dorothy webster hawksley, top right is from Jesus of Nazareth (TV Mini-Series 1977), bottom right  by Pistoia Pistoja Tuscany Italy Sculpture Luca Della ..
