"Christ ascended into heaven and prepared an everlasting dwelling-place for his most chaste mother. This is the sublime festival, surpassing that of any saint, on which she who is glorious and blessed entered the heavenly nuptial hall, acclaimed by the ranks of the heavenly court.

Panel from the doors of the Duomo in Florence.
