New British Museum exhibition announced:
Egypt: faith after the pharaohs - 29 October 2015 – 7 February 2016
Discover Egypt’s incredible journey over 12 centuries, as Jews, Christians and Muslims transformed this ancient land.
This exhibition tells the story of the change from a world of many ancient gods to the worship of one God. Uniquely preserved in Egypt’s arid climate,
the objects in the exhibition show how the shift to monotheism – the belief in one God – affected every part of life. Egypt’s experience reflects the
wider move from the ancient to medieval world, a transition that has shaped the world today.
