Massacre of the Innocents – Mazzolino

At the order of King Herod, soldiers roam the streets of Bethlehem, killing all male children who are two years old or younger, hoping to murder the Messiah. Chaos ensues as mothers fight desperately to save the lives of their sons. Meanwhile, the Magi have visited the Christ Child without reporting His whereabouts to King Herod and the Holy Family has fled to Egypt. Artwork by L. Mazzolino
