St. Francis of Assisi commemorated Christ's birth with the first living Nativity in 1233. As word of his compelling depiction spread, the reenactment of the first Christmas by members of the community would become a popular tradition throughout all Christendom. St. Francis' living Nativity would aslo serve as the inspiration for the miniature representations of the Christmas story that would eventually be found in homes the world over. Roughly hewn to replicate hand-carved stone, this Celtic Nativity is based on designs from the carved stonework found throughout much of Ireland. Early Christian monks used the carvings to illustrate various Bible stories in the course of their missionary work.
