At the Manger: World Nativity Traditions

Since 1997, the University of Dayton’s Marian Library has presented a selection of its expansive collection of 3,500 Nativity scenes from more than 100 countries, celebrating how people around the world ponder and picture the birth of Christ through many different cultural lenses.

As the Roesch Library undergoes a multi-year renovation, At the Manger displays in the library building will take place on a smaller scale. Dates, times, locations and other information about At the Manger during the renovation will be provided here and in other media as they are available. Please check back often for the latest information on the 2018 Advent and Christmas seasons.
