Et signum magnum paruit in caelo mulier amicta sole et luna sub pedibus eius et in capite eius corona stellarum duodecim Apoc twelve:1

Regardless of appearances, this carving of the Virgin of the Apocalypse hasn’t been in the King’s College Chapel from the start. In truth it was bequeathed to the University by Douglas Strachan in 1944.

The relief was originally polychrome (i.e. coloured). It was made somewhere in the German Rhineland in the late 15th century. It displays the girl clothed in the sun and standing on the moon of Revelation twelve:1.

In the 4 corners of the carving are 4 pre-Christian &quottypes&quot (i.e. prefigurations) of the Virgin Mary. These arrive from patristic and medieval commentaries on the bible and on classical history.

In the best left is the burning bush from which God spoke to Moses. The related verse &quot … and it was not consumed&quot Exod 3:2 was taken to be a form of Mary’s virginity which, it was claimed, she retained ante partum, in partu et publish partum (before, in and after the birth of Christ).

In the top rated correct the prophet Ezekiel is pointing to the closed gates of the Temple in Jerusalem (see Ezek 44:1-two). The Temple represent’s Mary’s entire body, which held God incarnate, even though the locked gate represents her intact virginity.

In the bottom right is Gideon kneeling by a fleece covered in dew, which God had provided him a signal of his impending victory above the Midianites (Judg 6:36-40). Again, the dew falling on the pure fleece was taken as a kind of the Term of God descending from heaven to just take flesh in Mary’s womb.

Finally, in the bottom right (partially obscured in this photo) are two figures: the Tiburtine Sibyl, pointing to the Virgin, and the Emperor Augustus, seated in front of her. It was broadly thought that the coming of Christ was prefigured and prophesied in pagan antiquity. Amid these pagan prophets ended up the Sibyls. The 13th cent. text Mirabilia Urbis Romae refers to the prophecy of the Tiburtine Sibyl, who told Augustus to build a temple on the web site on the Capitol now occupied by the church of St. Mary Ara Coeli (Altar of Heaven).

Augustus’ Temple was also named Ara Coeli. and the alleged link amongst the two was explained in the prophecy attributed to the Sibyl:

And in that really instant the sky opened, and a fantastic light fell on him, and Octavian observed in the heavens a lovely young lady with a crown, on a quite stunning altar, who carried in her arms a little one. And Octavian was very astonished, and heard a voice saying: &quotThis is the altar of the Son of God&quot. And Octavian threw himself to the ground at when, and worshipped Christ.

He is not really got all around to throwing himself on the ground right here!
