Pilgrimage and Faith: Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam explores pilgrimage as experienced in Buddhist, Christian, and Muslim faith communities. It addresses shared goals of personal development and communal solidarity as deep human needs. Unique in scope, this richly illustrated catalogue addresses religious diversity in a global perspective. Dating from the 12th century to the present day, ninety-five historical objects and mementos of present-day pilgrimages are beautifully presented in their context with a collection of essays by leading international scholars. Fine examples include sculptures in wood and limestone from France and copper and bronze from Tibet, a pilgrimage itinerary book from Japan, stained glass from the Middle Ages, a Renaissance enameled chalice from Italy, a lavish embellished Quran from Iran, and Islamic prayer scrolls in silver amulet casings. By studying objects of supreme artistic skill along with mass-produced objects and personal acquisitions such as stones or soil from the holy place, the scholars shed new light on the continuity of pilgrimage and faith the past and the present and the motivations and experiences of persons of all social strata. The exhibition starts at the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Art Gallery, College of the Holy Cross, Worcester MA, then travels to the Loyola University Museum of Art, Chicago, the University of Richmond Art Museums, Richmond, VA, and finally the Rubin Museum of Art, New York City. This accompanying catalogue offers unique contributions that combine both general and specialist appeal an important addition to any private and public library. Printed pages: 356 with 362 colour illustrations.
