“Unmissable… a fascinating journey through the art of religions from India to Ireland” – Mary Beard
Our new exhibition Imagining the Divine is now open! This major exhibition is the first to look at the art of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam & Judaism as religion spread across continents in the first millennium AD.
Why do we think of Jesus Christ with a beard? Or Buddha as cross-legged? Today, the pictures people conjure when they think of the world’s major religions are distinctive and immediately recognisable. But two thousand years ago that was not the case.
The exhibition is open until 18 February 2018.
