Christus Natus Est

Commemorating 800 Years of Christmas Cribs



A photographic essay commemorating 800 years from the first Christmas Crib staged by St Francis of Assisi 1223-2023

Christmas, which reveres the birth of Jesus Christ as a human being, strikes a chord with a vast audience. The narrative is infectious – a young and unassuming couple embrace for the first time their baby in a rudimentary setting.

Devotion apart, the scene brims with affection, hope and authentic simplicity, and engages on an emotional and spiritual level all spectators, irrespective of nationality, age, gender, and social stratification. Essentially, the nativity of Jesus Christ is a timeless personification of benevolence and charm.
