Colourful Christmas cards capturing details of the Journey of the Magi. Reproducing miniatures from an illuminated page illustrating twelve ‘Scenes from the Life of Christ’; created in Canterbury c.1140 and now in the Library’s superlative collection of manuscripts. The Magi's visit to the Christ Child is set out in Matthew 2:1-12. While depictions of the Magi are dated to the 3rd century, the symbolic value of the 'Three Kings' grew in the medieval period; becoming associated with the Three Ages of Man and the universality of Christ's teachings.
