      She was begotten like the cherubim, from pure and spotless [clay]. For
      while she was still in the loins of her father Joachim, her mother Anna
      received a message from a holy angel, who said to her, 'Thy seed shall
      be spoken of throughout all the world.' Therefore Anna brought her to
      the temple of the Lord as an offering.
      And during all her time there, the maiden stood alongside Christ the
      King, 'at his right hand, splendidly robed in a robe of gold,' as the
      prophet says 'Listen, daughter, and see, and incline thine ear; forget
      thy people and thy father's house. The King greatly desireth thy
      beauty; he is thy Lord -- pay homage to Him' (Ps. 44:10-13).

      Theoteknos, Bishop of Livias, And Encomium on the Assumption of the
      Holy Mother of God.
