of Christian worship?
L \ Annunciation is considered one of the central mysteries of Christian worship. That \ 's when the divine \' s embodies man \ 's angel Gabriel announced to Mary his new status as mother of the Son of God, and explains it \' bear a child in her womb while remaining virgin. It \ 's \' s rise to the belief in a virgin birth that \ 'should not be confused with the doctrine of the \' immaculate conception, clean modern Catholicism.
L \ Annunciation is when original sin is washed \ 's Adam and Eve. A pure woman gives birth to Christ, wash the sin \ impurity \ 's Eve. Potential release, because it \ 's actually doing as "the Cross and the Resurrection." AA96

"So Mary arose in those days and went with haste into the hill country, to a city of Judah, and she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. Well, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the little child in her womb leaped, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and she let out a loud cry and said: "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! So how is it that [privilege] is mine: that we do come to me the mother of my Lord? Because, you see, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the tiny child in my womb leapt for joy. "Luke 1:39-44

From the tomb-shrine of "Persian martyrs" (Marius, Martha, and Audiface Abacuc) San Lorenzo Cremona. L \ 'inscription gives the name of the sponsor, Antonio dei Meli, Doctor of Law and abbot of the monastery.
This doctrine, however, poses a thorny theological dilemma. Mary is really dead before his alleged ascension? It would be difficult to grant him to have escaped death, privilege even Christ did not. And if she is dead, then why? Because it is the punishment of original sin, which Mary was preserved, according to the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception.

A dilemma

thorny theological

The belief in the Assumption is not based on a scriptural basis or on a specific text for the first time the Church.

"Scripture does not directly teach the Immaculate Conception. The early Fathers \ 's Church considered Mary as holy, but not entirely without sin. "AA93 There is" no direct mention of the Assumption in the Bible "AA90. In 13 th century Thomas Aquinas recognized that "it is impossible to make a dogma of the Assumption as the Scriptures do not teach. "We found no trace of celebrations or worship in his honor before the third century. AA91

The Louvre has a variant of the Annunciation in the Uffizi Gallery, facing Florence, and early work by Leonardo da Vinci. It \ 's is d \ a tempera painting on poplar wood. It represents the Angel Gabriel saluting the Virgin Mary and the \ 'interrupted in his reading of the Bible to tell her that she is destined to give birth to the son of God. Acquired by Napoleon III in 1861, when the sale of the collection of the Marquis Campana, she entered the Louvre in 1863. L \ 'attribution of this work continues to \ be discussed between Leonardo da Vinci and Lorenzo di Credi, who then attended both \' s workshop of Verrocchio.

The text of Luke 1:28 is the theological basis for this assertion: "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. You are blessed among women, and the fruit of your womb is blessed. "(Maredsous, Bible peoples). But the interpretation ignores the fact that the Greek term is not explicit. Other versions put 'full of grace' (Jerusalem, Osty), the object of the divine favor '(Crampon-Tricot),' the Lord grant you his favor '(Living Word) or "highly favored" (TMN ).
L \ Annunciation is one of the favorite themes \ 's Christian, Byzantine and Western art in particular. It thus appears on the mosaics \ 's triumphal arch of Santa Maria Maggiore (v.435) in Rome, where the Virgin weaves purple for the veil of the temple, according to the text of the apocryphal gospels. None of the Gospels mentions that Mary did at the time of \ Annunciation.

In 415 at the Council of Ephesus, the Virgin
was proclaimed Theotokos. Therefore its representations will multiply.
Dated V th century, the Annunciation, carved and painted wood fig,
is one of the first to
have been performed. AE60
Mary is depicted on a high stool in the process of spinning purple for the veil of the temple, when the angel Gabriel, of which there remains only one leg, it appears.
Woman of faith but imperfect, Marie also needed redemption. A fter the birth of her first child, Mary offered a sacrifice for sin (Leviticus 12:1-8, Luke 2: 22-24). In addition, "Virginity after childbirth is not taught in the NT. "AA92 It can not therefore be considered as an intercessor with God. - John 14:6,14.
Hyphen between Christianity and ancient religions of mother goddesses AA94 Mary is certainly one of the most powerful religious symbols in the history of the West. But that Marian devotion is inconsistent with the original Christianity.
