The Annunciation (from Latin annuntiatio), also referred to as the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Annunciation of Our Lady, or the Annunciation of the Lord.

The Annunciation (from Latin annuntiatio), also referred to as the Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Annunciation of Our Lady, or the Annunciation of the Lord, is the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox celebration of the announcement by the Archangel Gabriel to the Blessed Virgin Mary that she would conceive and become the mother of Jesus, the Jewish messiah and Son of God, marking His Incarnation. Gabriel told Mary to name her son Jesus, meaning "YHWH is salvation".

The fact of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is related in Luke 1:26-38

The fact of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is related in Luke 1:26-38. The Evangelist tells us that in the sixth month after the conception of St. John the Baptist by Elizabeth, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to the Virgin Mary, at Nazareth, a small town in the mountains of Galilee. Mary was of the house of David, and was espoused (. married) to Joseph, of the same royal family. She had, however, not yet entered the household of her spouse, but was still in her mother's house, working, perhaps, over her dowry. In The Catholic Encyclopedia. New York: Robert Appleton Company.

The Annunciation, by Botticelli . Hail, Mary, Full of Grace, The Lord is with You! Today is the feast day of the Annunciation, one of the earliest Christian feasts, the celebration of which dates back to the 4th century, although a painting of the Annunciation in the catacomb of Priscilla in Rome dates from the 2nd century. The Greek and Slavonic names for the Feast may be translated as good tidings. There he spoke to the undefiled Virgin who was betrothed to St Joseph: Hail, thou who art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus.

You are told that you will conceive a child, but not just any child-the Son of God! This happened to the Virgin Mary. The theme, the Annunciation, has been a favorite of artists through the centuries. The message itself is mysterious and miraculous and visually it is electrifying: a resplendent angel and a beautiful woman in a wide variety of settings. Equally intriguing to the author, however, are Mary's physical and emotional reactions to the angel Gabriel's proclamation. All women who are told they are pregnant experience some or all of Mary's emotions. They too may find themselves anxious, fearful, reflective, resigned or joyous over the prospect of bringing a new life into the world. Herself a mother, grandmother and professional art historian, Susanna Lombardi demonstrates that the theme of the Annunciation in art explores the greatest mystery of all, the genesis of the life force, and is also one of the most beautiful to behold.

I can't remember the last time a book made me feel serene, but this one does. It is a spiritual rather than religious book. In a world of turmoil and uncertainty, "Behold" provides moments of beauty and peace, through centering on a single theme in art through the ages: the annunciation. But you don't have to even believe in the annunciation to enjoy it. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the art criticism totally digestible, even to someone who knows nothing about art.
If my mother was still alive, this is the book I would buy for her. If I had a newly pregnant daughter, I would get it for her. The book does not just celebrate the annunciation, or celebrate art, but also life, pregnancy and that thing we can never quite define, but all know when we see it - beauty.
I have a feeling I am going to open this book over and over again, particularly when fed up or stressed, and look at my favorite Tissot, El Greco or Henry Ossawa Tanner. It beats taking anti depressants any day and is a lot better for our health. Thank you Susanna Lombardi.

This is a wonderful book and I am so happy I had the patience to wait for its publication. What a novel idea: paintings of the various reactions of the Virgin to the message brought her by Gabriel. The pictures are beautifully reproduced and the written text is superb. I am beginning my second reading. This is a book worth owning. My only regret is that it was not published in hardback.

This exqusite art book is a little gem. Although the theme is the Annunciation, the art Ms. Lombardi has chosen to show and describe to the reader is about the wonders of motherhood and the magical talents of great artists. I will treasure my copy always and will give this book as a perfect gift to mothers, mothers -to-be, grandmothers and yes, the men in their lives. The thorough and interesting commentary that accompanies each image increases the reader's appreciation and pleasure of these fabulous pieces of art.

I enjoyed it very much. I love the Renaissance paintings and the essays that accompany them.

I've already loaned it to several friends who are art-lovers, and may buy it for others as gifts.

This books looks like a shoddy photocopy, all images are totally off-color, and the design is so bad it keeps you from reading. I found it offensively expensive (I often buy expensive used books that worth every penny, and I do not mind the expense). Images are printed on yellowish paper and that color detracts from the color of the images printed on it. I am angry at myself because I wasted my money on this. Stay away from this book. It is not worth the money or the wait.
