One of the most famous images of Christmas in the days leading up to the holidays is the nativity scene – the birth of Jesus in the manger. While Christmas is a more secular tradition nowadays, the date is inextricably linked with its religious history. 

This scene has been appreciated in art since the 4th century. Christians have celebrated and immortalized the birth of Jesus in many different artistic media, from sculptures and carvings to paintings and windows. 

The earliest inscriptions and carvings of the story of Jesus's birth, found in Roman tombs of early Christians, include the narrative of the Magi coming to honor the birth of Jesus, and the Nativity itself, with the newborn prophet nestled between animals in a stable. 

While simple, these paintings were an effective way for the ancient people to pass on the story. The tale of the angel coming down to Mary and the birth in the manger — could be kept and safeguarded for future generations to understand.

In the middle ages, artists tended to incorporate more western elements into their work. For example, they painted the infant Jesus with a halo of light like the sun while the rest of the scene is cast in shadows. This was reportedly influenced by a vision of Saint Bridget of Sweden.
