The Christmas story illustrated with a collection of stained-glass images dating from the 12th to 15th centuries. Each is reproduced as an acetate window, which can be taken out and used as Christmas decoration. Famous windows include: the Annunciation panels at S. Croce Cathedral in Firenze; Uccello's Nativity window at Duomo; and a formal tableau dating from the 12th century, illustrating the Adoration of the Magi.
