The Marriage of the Virgin is the subject in Christian art depicting the marriage of the Virgin Mary and Joseph. The marriage is not mentioned in the canonical Gospels but is covered in several apocryphal sources, and later redactions, notably the 14th century compilation the Golden Legend. Unlike many other scenes in Life of the Virgin cycles (like the Nativity and Presentation of Mary), it is not a feast in the church calendar.
