Sacred Catalogue (Paperback)
People of the Book: Judaism, Christianity, Islam
ISBN:978 0 7123 4955 0
"The centrality of a book of revelation is one of the key features which these three religions have in common and underlies the reason for bringing them together in the ‘Sacred’ exhibition, which aims to contribute to a better understanding of the three traditions by exploring the aspects which they share as well as their differences. This is done primarily by focussing on how their sacred texts have been written down and adorned, leading to the production of some of the world’s most sublimely beautiful books. The manuscript emerges as a metaphor for the interaction between these three religions and the ways they have influenced each other."
