Nativity Scenes Exhibited in Church Museum in Moscow

The museum of Christ the Saviours Cathedral in Moscow presents around 70 exhibits from the collection of Neapolitan Museum Certosa di San Martino created by great artists of the 18th-19th centuries.
      As one of the stories goes, it was Pope Sixtus III who suggested in the 5th century creating "the tableau vivant" (living pictures) that would depict the birth of baby Jesus. He believed that such compositions could tell common people about Christmas. Thus, nativity scenes became a sort of the Bible for Illiterate.
      The exhibition runs till March, 8th.
