The Christmas Story

According to the Gospel of Luke

Angels and shepherds, a manger and a scared young woman with an amazing destiny - Luke's version of the Christmas story has been a favourite for centuries. It has also inspired some of the greatest painters of all time. So, here we have joined those paintings with the story as it is told in the bible. It contains some surprises, too. In Luke's version, the story begins with one of Mary's relatives, who will soon be visited by an angel with a strange request.
