This exhibition draws upon diverse material from across all
areas of the National Gallery of Victoria's rich collections to
explore a range of living religious traditions found in the
Australian community today.
The exhibition includes works of art rarely exhibited before,
dating from the medieval period through to the contemporary, and
takes a new look at religious practice and belief as seen through
the eyes of artists past and present.
Manuscripts of sacred texts, ritual vestments, objects employed
in worship and images of divinities will reveal the rich diversity
and common threads of spiritual practice and belief in contemporary
