On July 4, the St. Albanian Cathedral, or St. Alban's Cathedral, will reopen its doors to the general public after protracted quarantine activities. But to meet believers and simply curious tourists, he will not be a traditional Christmas scene with the image of the Virgin Mary, but a new painting that symbolizes the solidarity of the clergy with the Black Lives Matter movement for racial justice.


That week, the Archbishop of Canterbury (head of the Church of England) Justin Welby called for a revision of the tradition of portraying Christ as white. According to him, in churches and temples should also appear images of Jesus in the guise of a black, Asian and representative of the Middle East.

Supporting this philosophy, St. Alban's Cathedral in Hertfordshire closes the triptych in its altar until October, dedicated to the Nativity painting, which depicts the Virgin Mary and the Baby surrounded by shepherds and kings.


Instead, visitors to the cathedral will see a high-resolution print of the work of a contemporary artist, which defies the “Western myth” that Jesus looked European.
