    I'm afraid I don't see the correlation between December and any of these? Am I missing something?

    I would imagine the first is some biblical display. Potentially a display of the roman emperor who was afraid of the birth of Christ and the feared usurpation of his throne?

    YOu want rape? How about Bernini's rendering of the "Ecstasy of St. Theresa" instead?

    the vision, as described by st. teresa of avila

    "I saw an angel close by me, on my left side in bodily form. This I am not accustomed to see unless very rarely. Though I have visions of angels frequently, yet I see them only by an intellectual vision, such as I have spoken of before. It was our Lord's will that in this vision I should see the angel in this wise. He was not large, but small of stature, and most beautiful - his face burning, as if he were one of the highest angels, who seem to be all of fire: they must be those whom we call Cherubim…I saw in his hand a long spear of gold, and at the iron's point there seemed to be a little fire. He appeared to me to be thrusting it at times into my heart and to pierce my very entrails; when he drew it out, he seemed to draw them out also and to leave me all on fire with a great love of God. The pain was so great that it made me moan; and yet so surpassing was the sweetness of this excessive pain that I could not wish to be rid of it. The soul is satisfied now with nothing less than God. The pain is not bodily, but spiritual; though the body has its share in it, even a large one. It is a caressing of love so sweet which now takes place between the soul and God, that I pray God of his goodness to make him experience it who may think that I am lying."

    In the Catholic calendar, December 28 commemorates the "Holy Innocents", all the babies killed by Herod in Bethlehem shortly after the birth of Jesus (Matt 2.16-18 ). Its observance was first documented in the late 5th century.

    I'm assuming it's something about the violent past of christianity?
    and how it's depicted in western art?
    But if you want euphemism when it comes to the church and western art
    How about Guido Reni's St Sebastian?

    if you follow the line of the gold arrow in Bernini's sculpture, it's not pointed at St. Teresa's heart.
