The Cambridge Inter-faith Programme

The Cambridge Inter-faith Programme warmly invites you to join us for an evening with the curator of the British Museum's acclaimed exhibition, 'Egypt: faith after the Pharaohs', on Monday 1 February. The exhibition - one of the Museum's first to explore inter-faith relations - transports us beyond the pyramids to the Egypt of the First Millennium CE, when diverse religious communities lived alongside one another and transformed the land together. In November CIP collaborated with the exhibition to deliver two public workshops. Now curator Elisabeth O'Connell will come to Cambridge to make a presentation about the exhibition - described by the Guardian as a "magical dig into the past" - followed by comments from renowned Cambridge-based experts. Speakers will include Dr Simon Gathercole, Dr James Aitken, Dr Ben Outhwaite, Professor Nicholas de Lange, and Professor Janet Soskice. The event will begin at 5.30 and finish at 7.15, in the Faculty of Divinity, and will be followed by light refreshments.
