Exhibition podcast: “Letters of Light”

In this episode, we visit the exhibition “Letters of Light” with our host Marine Botton accompanied by Laurent Héricher – curator of the show and chief curator at the French National Library – and Mariam Al Dhaheri – assistant curator at Louvre Abu Dhabi.

As we walk through the five different sections of the exhibition, we will take a close look at some of the oldest and most important manuscripts from the three monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Join us as we dive into the birth of the three monotheisms and the origins of the sacred writings from the Hebrew Bible, the Christian Bible and the Holy Quran.
