Jews, Christians, and Muslims
Visit to an Exhibition at the Martin-Gropius-Bau (in German)
We’ll start of the year with a journey through time tracing the historical footsteps of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim religions. In keeping with our yearlong theme of multiple perspectives, we are especially interested in the dialogue between all three religions.
The religions’ interactions over the thousand years from 500 to 1500 CE can be seen as an exceptional moment in history with deep significance for our own time. The exhibition Jews, Christians, and Muslims, developed by the Austrian National Library, is dedicated to this extraordinary period of intense cultural exchange. The exhibition also incorporates precious documents from four major written traditions: Hebrew, Greek, Arabic, and Latin. The focus is on the areas of medicine, astronomy, and astrology, which benefited particularly from inter-cultural dialogue. Join the journey!
