Summary

Mary continues to pray, focusing on the open book before her, as the angel Gabriel announces the coming of Christ. The narrative of the Annunciation (Luke 1:26–37) is, at its core, about the moment when the word of God, contained in the book, became flesh.
Albrecht Altdorfer (German, Regensburg ca. 1480–1538 Regensburg)
