Christmas Illuminated  by Karl-Georg Pfändtner, Exhibition Catalog

The Christmas Illuminated Exhibition Catalog

From the onset, Christian theology was occupied with the question about the son of God born as a child, and particularly with the birth of Jesus. Not until the late Middle Ages did the artistic depictions begin to suggest the familiar atmosphere with which we associate Christmas celebrations today. During that time, artists transferred the event of God's incarnation into the environs of the affluent European city-states, and they placed their conceptualizations of nature into surroundings not unlike our own. 

This exhibition presents the Christmas story as observed in European book illumination from around the fifteenth/sixteenth centuries in German, Flemish, French, and Italian manuscripts. They belong to the most beautiful and valuable codices of this epoch held by the Bavarian State Library, and present illustrations of the Christmas story from the annunciation to the flight to Egypt.
