The Mother of God, more rarely Saint Bogomati and Saint Virgin Mary, originally Mary or Mary of Nazareth, in Galilee, according to Christian belief, is the mother of Jesus Christ. It is assumed that she was born on September 21, 20 BC, to Joachim and Anna. At the time of Jesus' conception, she was a virgin, married to Joseph of the house of David. According to Christian tradition, the child was conceived by the Holy Spirit and Mary remained a virgin even after giving birth.

The Mother of God is one of the names given to her in Christianity. The name of the Virgin began to be officially used only after the Third Ecumenical Council, which was preceded by numerous discussions. The Patriarch of Constantinople, Nestorius, opposed the introduction of the new name "Virgin" for Mary, the mother of Jesus, and instead proposed the name "Mother of Christ", believing that it included the humanity of Christ. Nevertheless, the name "The Virgin" was adopted, and Nestorius and his like-minded followers were declared heretics.
