The Chester Beatty Museum

This rich collection of ancient manuscripts and scrolls from the three major religions (Buddhism, Christianity and Islam) sets out to emphasize their common grounds. In a dark space, each religion was presented on a background of a different saturated colour with semi-transparent screens separating the areas.

Among other exhibits, positioned in-between the 8 pillars of Islam, the oldest Koran in the world can be viewed.
