1. Sistine Chapel Ceiling: Erythraean Sibyl (1508-12), detail, fresco. Michelangelo Buonarroti (Italian, 1475-1564).

    The Erythraean Sibyl is said to have been the daughter of a shepherd and a nymph. She lived in Erythrae, Ionia (Asia Minor), on the Aegean Sea. 

    What makes this woman important to Christians is her prediction of Christ, given in the form of an acrostic poem which formed the words, ‘Ihsous Xristos Qeou uios spthr, which means, “Jesus Christ the Son of God, the Saviour.”
