The House of the Virgin Mary

Faith, knowledge, history and art can tell many stories.  As an adult I can accept the concepts which are displayed below,  appreciate the views and wait for the stories to be published.

The chapel based on the claimed House of Mary in Ephesus . 


A note: the photo shows not the house of Virgin Mary, but the chapel built many years later on, beside it. What's left after the house is only a hole in the ground.

Image of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus, in the Catacomb of Priscilla in Rome. It depicts her nursing the Infant Jesus. This is earliest known image of Mary and the Infant Jesus independent of the Magi episode. The figure at the left appears to be the prophet Balaam pointing to a star (outside the frame). The star is from Numbers 24:17.
"The emphasis on the maternal love of Mary for the Child Jesus reflects the early Christian community's reverence for the Mother of God, and for its understanding of God's love for humankind in sending His only Son to earth to share in our humanity."
