Faith & Fortune ‘In Focus’
Visualising the Divine on Byzantine and Early Islamic Coinage
Barber Institute of Fine Arts
2:00-4:00 PM 8th March 2014
Faith & Fortune explores the cultural interchange between neighbouring Byzantine, Persian and early Islamic empires through coins, revealing constant dialogue, drama and confrontation.
This is an unique opportunity to explore the exhibition Faith and Fortune more closely. Join the curators for an introductory talk and coin handling session. Then see objects from the exhibition brought to life with the University’s innovative interactive touch talk. Meet at the Barber – the event involves a 10 minute walk across campus to the Digital Humanities Hub.
Attendance is free, but booking essential: education[at]barber.org.uk.
