More Joachim-and-Anna art and iconography

There is a lot of it, as it turns out, in both Eastern and Western Christian traditions.

I'm posting these without the references, sorry, because I have managed to clear the whole day and evening for thinking and writing and I am hogging it. It's raining in Greensboro, still warm and humid, but somehow easier to take (for this lover of Mediterranean climates who suffers in Southeastern weather) than the hovering-humidity weather when the skies don't open. It'll be back to muggy soon. A good day to be at home with the books.

As ever, thanks for your enlightening take.

BTW, nobody takes that "humid, please rain" climate well, even the natives. Nonetheless, next Saturday I shall be there for a few days (till the wee-est hour after midnight Wednesday morning)
