Ancient Jerusalem at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art

NEW YORK---New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art makes an ideal location for “Jerusalem 1000-1400: Every People Under Heaven” – an exhibition about coexistence and how important a metropolis can be (until 8 January). The show is a rare gathering of art from the three Abrahamic faiths. Of these, Islamic art has been getting most of the attention lately, just as Christian art slides into irrelevance. Judaic art has never really been visible outside the less-visited corners of museum basements. [link]
