The Nativity of Christ: Icons and Frescos

The Nativity of Christ is a great event for every Christian. The services for this feast are filled with feelings of joy and exaltation, and the many different icons of the Nativity of Christ, which have often caught the attention of researchers, theologians, and art historians, are a theme for art exhibitions. For almost two thousand years, iconographers have been painting icons and frescos of the Nativity, on which we can see the swaddled Infant in the manger, the Mother of God, Joseph, the animals at the manger, as well as the adoration of the Magi, the washing of the infant, the shepherds, and the angels.
