Exhibition Sacred Places, Sacred Books

The MAS (Museum aan de Stroom) offers an insight into the tradition of pilgrimages. Judaism, Christianity and Islam are closely related. They all originated in the Middle East and regard Abraham as an important forefather. One almighty everlasting God created the world and manifested himself to humanity in words. That manifestation is recorded in holy books which are a handbook for life: The Tanakh, the Bible and the Koran. All believers practice their religion through a rich variety of customs. For example it has, for centuries, been customary for believers to visit holy places such as Jerusalem, Rome and Mecca.

Sacred Places, Sacred Books is a dual exhibition on the three monotheistic global religions. Visitors to the MAS can find out about the tradition of the pilgrimage. In the Nottebohm room of the Hendrik Conscience Heritage Library you can examine special copies of the holy books. The two exhibitions show what the holy books and places mean to past and present believers.

Here the focus is on the significance of the holy books of Jews, Christians and Muslims. Why are they so crucial to believers? You are given a unique insight into the content, form, use and study of the Tanakh, the Bible and the Koran. Find out how an eternal, divine revelation has been interpreted in different ways by people over time.
