I could be wrong, but I think it has something to do with human passivity in the presence of the divine. When we say, The Announcement, it suggests a communique from a human medium, whereas an Annunciation is visited on us by some other medium. Same with visitation. Mary alone might pay a visit, but in this instance, Elizabeth is receiving a visitation from Our Lord.

I'm just guessing though.


I wonder if the English form is attempting to mimic a Latin construction.
