"Properly, a luminous ring encircling an astronomical body, but not infrequently confounded with 'aureola' or 'nimbus,' a somewhat similar phenomenon worn as a head-dress by divinities and saints.

In the painting of the Nativity, by Szedgkin, a pious artist of Pesth, not only do the Virgin and the Child wear the nimbus, but an ass nibbling hay from the sacred manger is similarly decorated and, to his lasting honor be it said, appears to bear his unaccustomed dignity with a truly saintly grace"
