The world: faith and objects

Wednesday 11th October 2017
Living with gods, highlights objects

A new British Museum exhibition explores what makes believing a vital part of human behaviour, by looking at everyday objects of faith from around the world and through time. There is no known culture in history, or in the world, without religious beliefs. What sustains such a worldwide phenomenon? Prayer, Festivals and Objects

The exhibition features objects that highlight the power of prayer, the importance of festivals and pilgrimage, and the marking by key life experiences. These together offer a fresh perspective on belief practices, and how hugely important they are for all human societies. Curator Jill Cook introduces some highlights from the exhibition in a new  British Museum blog post,  The exhibition accompanies a BBC Radio 4 Series by Neil MacGregor which begins on 23 October, and a book published by Allen Lane.
