Three Faiths: Christianity, Judaism and Islam
When the Three Faiths Exhibit at The New York Public Library opened in New York, we asked the eight curators and advisers to share their favorite pieces. It's an exhibit that contains, as one of the sponsors described it, "so many treasures."
The curators chose a wide range of items from the three Abrahamic Faiths: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Their favorites include a Scroll of Esther from 1686; Qur’an fragments from 9th century Iraq or Iran; and a beautiful illustration of the Sermon on the Mount, from Rome in the 1500s. Click through the gallery to see photos of these and discover more of their favorites from the 200 items on display. Then visit our Three Faiths page to find out more about this fascinating exhibit.
