Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary is the Christian celebration of the announcement by the angel Gabriel to Virgin Mary, that she would conceive and become the mother of Jesus the Son of God. The Annunciation has been a key topic in Christian art in general, as well as in Roman Catholic Marian art, particularly during the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

  • Fost-a trimis îngerul Gavriil de la Dumnezeu, într-o cetate din Galileea, al cărei nume era Nazaret, către o fecioară logodită cu un bărbat care se chema Iosif, din casa lui David; iar numele fecioarei era Maria.  Şi intrând îngerul la ea, a zis: “ Bucură-te, ceea ce eşti plină de har, Domnul este cu tine. Binecuvântată eşti tu între femei ”. Iar ea, văzându-l, s-a tulburat de cuvântul lui şi cugeta în sine: Ce fel de închinăciune poate să fie aceasta? Şi îngerul i-a zis: “ Nu te teme, Marie, căci ai aflat har la Dumnezeu. Şi iată vei lua în pântece şi vei naşte fiu şi vei chema numele lui Iisus. Acesta va fi mare şi Fiul Celui Preaînalt se va chema şi Domnul Dumnezeu Îi va da Lui tronul lui David, părintele Său. Şi va împărăţi peste casa lui Iacov în veci şi împărăţia Lui nu va avea sfârşit ”. Şi a zis Maria către înger: “ Cum va fi aceasta, de vreme ce eu nu ştiu de bărbat? ” Şi răspunzând, îngerul i-a zis: “ Duhul Sfânt Se va pogorî peste tine şi puterea Celui Preaînalt te va umbri; pentru aceea şi Sfântul care Se va naşte din tine, Fiul lui Dumnezeu se va chema. Şi iată Elisabeta, rudenia ta, a zămislit şi ea fiu la bătrâneţea ei şi aceasta este a şasea lună pentru ea, cea numită stearpă. Că la Dumnezeu nimic nu este cu neputinţă ”. Şi a zis Maria: “ Iată roaba Domnului. Fie mie după cuvântul tău! ” Şi îngerul a plecat de la ea. ( Luca 1, 26-38 )
  • In contrast to Eve, who was readily deceived by the serpent, the Virgin did not immediately accept the Angel’s message. In her humility, she did not think she was deserving of such words, but was actually troubled by them. The fact that she asked for an explanation reveals her sobriety and prudence. She did not disbelieve the words of the angel, but could not understand how they would be fulfilled, for they spoke of something which was beyond nature. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?“ (Luke 1:34). ” And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Most High shall overshadow thee: therefore also that which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. For with God nothing shall be impossible.’ And Mary said, ’Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.’ And the angel departed from her“ (Luke 1: 35-38).”
  • In his Sermon 23 on the day of the Annunciation, St Philaret of Moscow boldly stated that “the word of the creature brought the Creator down into the world.” He explains that salvation is not merely an act of God’s will, but also involves the Virgin’s free will. She could have refused, but she accepted God’s will and chose to cooperate without complaint or further questions. The icon of the Feast shows the Archangel with a staff in his left hand, indicating his role as a messenger. Sometimes one wing is upraised, as if to show his swift descent from heaven. His right hand is stretched toward the holy Virgin as he delivers his message. The Virgin is depicted either standing or sitting, usually holding yarn in her left hand. Sometimes she is shown holding a scroll. Her right hand may be raised to indicate her surprise at the message she is hearing. Her head is bowed, showing her consent and obedience. The descent of the Holy Spirit upon her is depicted by a ray of light issuing from a small sphere at the top of the icon, which symbolizes heaven. In a famous icon from Sinai, a white dove is shown in the ray of light.
  • There are several famous icons of the Annunciation. One is in the Moscow Kremlin in the church of the Annunciation. This icon appeared in connection with the rescue of a prisoner by the Mother of God during the reign of Ivan the Terrible. Another is to be found in the Dormition Cathedral in Moscow (July 8). It was originally located in Ustiug, and was the icon before which St Procopius the fool (July 8) prayed to save the city from destruction in 1290. One of the most highly revered icons in Greece is the Tinos icon of the Annunciation (January 30). The Annunciation falls during Lent, but it is always celebrated with great joy. The Liturgy of St Basil or St John Chrysostom is served, even on the weekdays of Lent. It is one of the two days of Great Lent on which the fast is relaxed and fish is permitted (Palm Sunday is the other). (From the OCA website)  
  • Being a descendant of an Armenian refugee family in Romania, from the time of the Armenian Genocide, I was born on 27th February, 1973 in Miercurea-Ciuc (Harghita). When I was 4 years old, we moved with my parents to Gherla (the native town of my father). There I graduated the primary and high school and in 1998 I took my degree in Economics from the University Babes-Bolyai of Cluj-Napoca. My preoccupation with art, a tradition in my family (my grandfather was a master in carpets),
  • Get Baxandall's " Painting and Experience in 15th century Italy " for a comprehensive description of the italian preacher Fra Roberto Caracciolo da Lecce's views of the Annunciation - it has a very interesting description of the stages of the annunciation which the author tries to tie to examples in the renaissance paintings. The first stage is "Conturbatio/Disquiet"; the second stage is "Cogitatio/Reflection"; then there's "Interrogatio/Enquiry", "Humiliato/Submission" (which the Fran Angelico version is an example) and finally "Meritatio/Merit". His book is mainly about trying to figure out why did the painters opt for this or that composition and in the case of the annunciation he makes the point that probably the artists were drawing their information from the preachers and so he analyzes the relevant sermons. Also, you may want to look for articles on the iconography of these paintings (or of the Virgin Mary) as they are usually crowded with symbols of the various perfections of the Virgin which you can find in the Litany of Loreto . These symbols are very often associated with the Song of Songs: you may notice there is a fountain ( 4:15) or a tower (4:4) and that the annunciation often takes place in an enclosed garden (4:12).
