Early texts of monotheistic faiths go on show





Religious and artistic similarities between the Jewish, Christian and Islamic faiths are to be shown in a groundbreaking exhibition of some of the world's earliest surviving sacred texts.

"Sacred: Discover What We Share," opening tomorrow at the British Library in London, will feature rare and exquisite examples of early bibles, korans and torahs.

It marks the first time a flagship exhibition will display texts from the major monotheistic faiths side by side in order to emphasise their similarities, both in the stories they contain and how they are decorated.
