Scriptural Reasoning at the British Museum

last modified Nov 11, 2015 03:19 PM
CIP is very excited to be working with the British Museum's pioneering new exhibition - 'Egypt: faith after the Pharaohs' - to deliver two Scriptural Reasoning workshops. Participants will read and reflect together on Christian, Jewish and Muslim sacred texts.

The exhibition tells the story of Egypt during one of the most fascinating periods of its history, 30 BC to AD 1171, when Jews, Christians and Muslims lived alongside each other through "long periods of peaceful coexistence, and intermittent tension and violence". Its remarkable collection of objects provide "unparalleled access to the lives of individuals and communities" that formed a part of this rich and complex tale. Many are on display for the first time.

 

The Workshops

CIP is providing two opportunities to delve deeper into the scriptures of these different communities. Based around the themes of ‘Changing Landscapes’ and ‘Pilgrimage’, the workshops will be held in the museum on Sunday 15th and 22nd November, are completely free, and open to all of any or no faith. We’d love to see as many people there as possible – and if you’ve yet to try Scriptural Reasoning, now’s your chance!

 

Book Tickets 

Book for 'Changing Landscapes' at 2pm on Sunday 15 November.

Book for 'Pilgrimage' at 2pm on Sunday 22 November.
