Rublev original?

I have my doubts that the tradition of this icon only extends to the 15th century. Surely Rublev didn't invent this... did he? —Fr. Andrew talk contribs (THINK!) 12:54, December 27, 2008 (UTC)

I agree, Fr Andrew. The french article suggest a lot more ancient typology: ---Inistea 13:28, December 30, 2008 (UTC)
Since this is not an article I am familiar with all I will do is offer the following weblink which will offer some further insight into other nativity icons painted prior to Rublev ... if someone is willing to incorporate this information into the article somehow it would be great - I dont want to touch another persons hard work.
