The first in a new series inspired by key events in the New Testament. This book presents a sequence of over 100 masterpieces of Christian art, each depicting the poignant and dramatic moment when the Angel Gabriel reveals to the Virgin Mary her destiny as the Mother of God. The images, each on a single page with a simple caption opposite, speak for themselves; together, in their beauty and variety they form an extended meditation on a religious mystery and a human dram that has inspired the finest artists through the ages.
