Icon of the Presentation

"Hail, full of grace, Virgin Mother of God, for from you there dawned the Sun of righteousness, Christ our God, who enlightens those in darkness. Be glad too, righteous Elder, for you received in your embrace the Liberator of our souls, who grants us also resurrection." - This Greek troparion for today's feast was translated into Latin in the Middle Ages, and is used in the Dominican rite. Detail from an icon in the Anglican theological college, St Stephen's House, in Oxford.
