What do we think?

The Ashmolean’s latest major exhibition, the highly-anticipated ‘Imaging the Divine’, will display striking artefacts created by the world’s five most widespread religions as they established and developed their visual identities. New research from the remarkable ‘Empires of Faith‘ project, in partnership with the University of Oxford and the British Museum and funded by the Leverhulme Trust, will be shared with the public for the very first time, encouraging visitors to reconsider encounters between religions, as well as the importance of the images and icons which shaped ideas of truth and belief in each one. If Mary Beard deems it “Unmissable… a fascinating journey through the art of religions from India to Ireland”, our minds are pretty much made up. A day trip to Oxford, anyone?

What do they say?

“Exploring Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism, this major exhibition will be the first to look at the art of the five world religions as they spread across continents in the first millennium AD.”
