In this catalogue we examine the formation and iconography of the three monotheistic faiths: Judaism, Christianity,and Islam. The focus is on the external face that each religion projects - it's signs and symbols.
The catalogue sheds light on the various symbols shared by the Jewish, Christian and Muslim inhabitants of the Ancient Near East. The theme concentrates on the creation and veneration of religious symbols as well as the figurative use of words.
The catalogue is in Hebrew, Arabic and English.
