Na­tiv­ity scenes at Beaulne

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Coat­i­cook

TheBeaulne Mu­seum is de­lighted to present the ex­hibit “Fol­low the star”!...Na­tiv­ity scenes. From the 15th of De­cem­ber 2013 to the 19th of Jan­uary 2014. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited to come and view this ex­hibit.

Un­wa­ver­ing sym­bol of the na­tiv­ity, the manger holds our at­ten­tion dur­ing Christ­mas hol­i­days. Cel­e­brated since the 4th cen­tury, it al­ways cre­ates a lot of ex­cite­ment in fam­i­lies and within so­ci­ety. Na­tiv­ity scenes come in all shapes and sizes but al­ways in ref­er­ence to the bi­ble and to Luke 2, 1-19 who re­cites the birth of Je­sus Christ. The al­most uni­ver­sal na­ture of Catholi­cism al­lows na­tiv­ity scenes to be rep­re­sented ac­cord­ing to cul­tural sen­si­tiv­ity by the peo­ple who pro­duced them. This diver­sity of re­pro­duc­tion has the ad­van­tage of pro­vid­ing rich­ness to the theme of the na­tiv­ity.

This ex­hibit con­tains about fif­teen mangers of dif­fer­ent sizes and pro­vides a quick overview on the sub­ject through ob­jects which will evoke mem­o­ries. We would like to thank the peo­ple who kindly ac­cepted to lend them to the Mu­seum.
