Why is Joseph often shown holding a candle or lantern? Why are there usually three wise men, when the Bible specifies no exact number? Artists who depict the Christmas story rely on theological and artistic tradition, as well as their own imaginations. This exhibition explores the origins of the various elements that make up a Nativity scene.
