An exhibition at Aquileia unveils artistic and cultural treasures.
In order to make this millennia-long history better known, the Terra Sancta Museum has lent some of its treasures to the exhibition “Faces of Palmira in Aquileia,” taking place from July 1 to October 1 at the National Archaeological Museum of Aquileia, Italy.
Some of the pieces lent by the Terra Sancta Museum include 4 funerary reliefs, some sculptures depicting priests, 3 mosaics and around 30 clay amulets. The Vatican Museums and other Italian institutions also will add some of their own pieces to the exhibition.
Go through the slideshow to admire some of the splendid finds that will be displayed in the exhibition, testimonies of the faith and culture of Near Eastern Christianity.
