This is one of seven known replicas made by contemporaries of Botticelli after an original the artist painted ca. 1481. It may even have been produced in the artist's workshop. The title derives from the opening words of the Virgin's song of exaltation, Magnificat anima mea dominus (My soul doth glorify the Lord), which she is writing in the book before her.
