The article examines the significant role of domestic elements in the Annunciations painted by 14th and 15th century artists. Among these objects Thalamus Virginis stands out for its Mariological and Christological meaning. The drawing of Gabriel's announcement to Mary, keeping the bed in the background, could serve as a model to illustrate other announcements or warnings of spirits or angels in sentimental and chivalric fiction. The outstanding illustrations of the first Castilian prints of the Baladro del sabio Merlín or Tristán de Leonís, among others, are examined. We propose that the counterfigures of the Annunciation could also be transmitted in other sacred-profane episodes of other fictions, such as La Celestina and Tirant the Blanc.
