Introduction to the Temple of the Blessed Virgin by Paolo Uccello

This event of the early childhood of the Virgin Mary is mentioned in the apocryphal gospels and creations of the church fathers. The Virgin Mary, who is not supported by anyone, rises the steps of the temple.

At the foot of the stairs are Joachim and Anna, the pious parents of the Virgin Mary, who promised to dedicate it to God. On the top of the staircase she is met by priests – including Zacharias, the father of John the Forerunner.
