Museum of the Bible Unveils Newest Exhibition ‘Sacred Drama: Performing the Bible in Renaissance Florence’

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS

WASHINGTON, DC — Officially opened to the public on July 1, 2018, Museum of the Bible’s newest exhibition, Sacred Drama: Performing the Bible in Renaissance Florence, offers a rare opportunity to learn about Sacred Drama (Sacra Rappresentazione), a theme never before featured in an exhibition in the United States. Sacred dramas were theatrical performances of Old and New Testament stories and the lives of the saints. Religious communities used sacred dramas to provide moral instruction and civic education to children, the future citizens of Florence. Museum of the Bible is pleased to be the first institution to bring this little-known, yet very influential Renaissance-era cultural experience to U.S. audiences. [More]
