Book now for 'Egypt: faith after the pharaohs' - an evening with the curator

last modified Jan 14, 2016 04:54 PM
CIP is delighted to be collaborating with the British Museum to deliver a unique public event centring on the Museum's most recent exhibition - 'Egypt: faith after the pharaohs'.

Hear from the curator behind the exhibition as we uncover the rich and enlightening stories told by its many objects and the resonances they have for us today.

British Museum Daniel potAbout the exhibition

A "magical dig into the past", the British Museum’s critically-acclaimed exhibition transports us beyond the pyramids to the Egypt of the First Millennium AD, when diverse religious communities lived alongside one another and transformed the land. 

The objects on display "tell a rich and complex story of influences, long periods of peaceful coexistence, and intermittent tension and violence between Jews, Christians and Muslims".

The event

British Museum curator Elisabeth R. O'Connell will present her illuminating perspective on the exhibition, followed by comments from key experts within the field including Dr James Aitken, Dr Simon Gathercole, Professor Garth Fowden, and Dr Ben Outhwaite. Free and open to all. 

When

Monday 1 February, 5.30-7.15 pm

Where

Faculty of Divinity, Cambridge

Booking

Free. Book now or turn up on the day.
