About this product
- DescriptionThe Art of Faith celebrates the impact of faith on the art of a region with a long history of migration and diverse beliefs. Across the centuries, Norfolk has been the home to many and varied faiths: Vikings, Anglo-Saxons and Romans all came with their own belief systems. During the Roman period, Christians settled in this region; in the middle ages there were thriving Jewish communities; and, from the fifteenth century onwards there was a bewildering number of different branches of Christianity. Over the past two centuries a greater diversity has emerged. Norfolk's faiths w include those of Sikhs, Muslims, Pagans, Buddhists, Hindus and Mormons. Intriguingly, the low lying landscape of this region of Britain can be seen to have had a lasting impact upon the sacred sites of many of these varied faiths.
