What lies at the heart of the Feast of Epiphany, which celebrates when the Three Kings presented gifts to the Christ Child? Do we commemorate actual events, or are we swayed by the allure of legend and the power of myth? Turning to discoveries made by historians, scientists and theologians, Polish author Grzegorg Gorny addresses these questions. With gorgeous four-color photographs on every page, he traces the mysteries of the Three Magi from the Gospel of Matthew to modern-day astronomy to revived Epiphany celebrations on the streets of secularized European capitals. As a result, Christmas itself is reexamined in a new light. Hardcover.
