According to Catholic tradition, St. Joachim and St. Anne, the parents of the Virgin Mary, presented their young daughter at the Temple in Jerusalem. The scene is depicted here in stained glass.
The presentation finds mention in the Greek menologies (Church calendars) and in apocryphal (non-canonical) texts such as the Protoevangelium of James.
When Saint Anne miraculously became pregnant in her later years, she consecrated her child to God as a gesture of gratitude. The Feast of the Presentation of Mary in the Temple is Nov 21.
