Getty Exhibit features illuminated medieval art in Torah, Bible and Qur’an

 

 

M Sacred texts of the world’s top three religions – Islam, Christianity and Judaism – are on display at the J. Paul Getty Museum in  Los Angeles, USA, and the most distinctive about the medieval manuscripts are the beautiful illuminated drawings throughout each piece.

The exhibit, “Art of Three Faiths: A Torah, A Bible, and A Qur’an,” showcases the similarities of the religions, who all consider Abraham as their patriarch and all believe in the concept of monotheism.

The Qur’an manuscript is highlighted with ornate and intricate gold calligraphy. According to the Getty, artists incorporated Quranic verses into books, textiles, coins, ceramics and architecture to demonstrate reverence for the written word.
