5th January The Feast of the Epiphany
'The Magi saw the star and said to
one another: This is the sign of the
great King; let us go and seek him;
let us offer him gifts: gold,
frankincense and myrrh.'
(Evening Prayer for the Epiphany)
This image was made for Autun Cathedral by
the 12th century sculptor Gislebertus. It shows
an Angel telling the sleeping Kings that they should
follow the star (seen above their heads),
which will lead them to the stable in bethlehem.
