Category:Entombment of Christ

The «Entombment of Christ» is a subject in Christian iconography where Jesus is buried in his tomb by the Virgin Mary, Mary Magdalene, Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus (these 4 are mentioned in the New Testament — other persons are often added in art). It may be very similar to the preceding «Lamentation of Christ».

For Christ's dead body alone without witnesses see «Jesus at the tomb».
