Until the 13th Century, scenes of the Nativity were only seen in 2 and 3 dimensional art. It wasn’t until 1223 that Saint Francis of Assisi is credited with creating the first live nativity scene.

It wasn’t until 1223 that Saint Francis of Assisi is credited with creating the first live nativity scene.

Having recently returned to Greccio, Italy, from a Pilgrimage to the Holy Lands, Saint Francis desired to make his Christmas Mass extra special. Looking for a way to put more emphasis on the birth of Christ, and not the trappings of the Church St. Francis was inspired by the shepherds watching over their flocks on the outskirts of Greccio. Using them for his backdrop, next a cave on the edge of town became the manger setting. He then added people of the town dressed in biblical robes to what would be a live nativity scene. Hay was laid for ox and donkeys, and a babe was laid in a manger.

Saint Francis was so overcome and full of devotion for baby Jesus he could not speak his name but simply called him the Babe of Bethlehem. The whole affair took on a truly spiritual air and must be considered truth for the miracles which came afterwards confirm it as true. The hay from the manger afterwards was said to cure all diseases of cattle and many other pestilences.

Within a hundred years, every church in Italy was expected to have a nativity scene at Christmas time.
