Встреча Марии с Елизаветой {5752}
The meeting of Maria with Elizabeth
The representation of the Visitation incorporating images of the unborn Christ and John the Baptist found with some frequenty in contemporary works from German speaking lands emphasizes the moment when, according to "The Golden Legend," Saint John, being unable "to manifest his joy with his tongue," leapt "with joy in his mother's womb." The Virgin tenderly places Her hand on Elizabeth's shoulder, while Her cousin raises her arm to her breast in reference to her declaration, "Who am I, that the mother of the Lord should visit me?" (Luke 1:43)
Gift of J. Pierpont Morgan, 1917.
