Simeon’s “Nunc Dimittis” in pictures

This mornings classes on the presentation of the little baby Jesus – eight days old – in the temple concentrated on Simeon’s “Nunc Dimittis”. Here are some pictures used as illustration. One group depicting Greek and Russian icons, whereas the other is comprised entirely of paintings by the Dutch Rembrandt van Rijn. Guess which is my favourite?
