STRANGE PHENOMENA - CHRISTIANITY The 'miracle' of two children [hence the word Gemini, meaning Twins], born with the magnetic power sufficient to open locks. The woodcut, illustrating this power, is a visual argument that if this may happen then why should not the miracle of the virgin birth also occur. The quotation is from Albertus Magnus, De Motibus Animalium. Woodcut from Franciscus de Retza, Defensorium inviolatae virginitas Mariae, 1471.
