Divine Inspirations

Remarkable items reflecting faith


The Mid-Antrim Museum at The Braid in Ballymena, County Antrim  are collaborating with the Chester Beatty Library for their forthcoming exhibition Divine Inspiration: remarkable objects reflecting faith.  This exhibition explores aspects of divine inspiration at a local level with the influential 1859 Ulster Revival and its legacy; and at an international level with remarkable artefacts from some of the great world religions from the collections of the Chester Beatty Library.  In recent years local and international have come closer together with the growing religious diversity found in Northern Ireland.  There is a companion booklet of the same title to accompany this exhibition avaliable from The Braid shop.

Divine Inspiration: remarkable objects reflecting faith exhibition will run from Friday 9 October 2009 to Saturday 14 February 2010.  Admission is free.

Mid-Antrim Museum explores local identity and history of people and place, from the earliest times to the present day, set in its national and international context.
