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.

Roesch Library will conclude a multi-year renovation prior to the 2019 At the Manger displays. Please check back often for the latest information on plans for the 2019 Advent and Christmas seasons.
