Illustrated left is a scene from an illuminated pedigree of Christ, showing his descent from Adam, which is amongst the archives of the College of Arms.

The pedigree dates from the fourteenth century, shows the judges, kings and conquerors of Israel, and is illuminated with biblical incidents in roundels.

The scene left is of the nativity of Christ: Christ is shown at the top of the image in the manger, overseen by oxen. Mary and Joseph look away, seeming to regret the inferior accommodation available.
