Nubian Christian painting of the three Hebrew men in the fiery furnace of Nebuchadnezzar, saved by the angel (Daniel 3).  This was a popular image in Nubian Christian art.  The story of Nubian Christianity is remarkable.  At around 540 AD, the warring kings and kingdoms of Nobatia, Makuria, and Alodia (all now Northern Sudan) became Christian at roughly the same time.  They reconciled their differences and merged their kingdoms.  This led to a flourishing literary and artistic culture in the Upper Nile region.  See what is known about the Kingdom of Makuria and artwork in the Faras Cathedral Mary and Infant Jesus, the Cross and Four Living Creatures, and Madonna and Child with Bishop Marianos.  The Nubians resisted and/or survived Arab Islamic military advances until around 1500 AD.  Here are other Nubian Christian frescoes.  Photo credit: Ibrahim Omer, Wikimedia Commons.
