Mary the “Rose of Heaven”
The Virgin Mary is depicted here as the Mother of God, the Theotokos (Θεοτόκος – Greek for “God-Bearer”). She was officially proclaimed as such at the Ecumenical Council of Ephesus in 431 A.D. because she gave birth not to a human being but to God as a human being. Mary the Mother of God is depicted here with the Son of God on her lap. They are surrounded by the vines of a rose garden. Mary is indeed the “Rose of Heaven”. In his Paradiso, Dante’s guide, Beatrice, invites him to contemplate among the heavenly inhabitants the beauty of Mary, the Mother of God: “Why are you so enamored of my face that you do not turn your gaze to the beautiful garden which blossoms under the radiance of Christ? There is the rose, in which the divine word became flesh; here are the lilies whose perfume guides you in the right ways.” (Paradiso, Canto XXIII).
