The J. Paul Getty Museum Presents Art of Three Faiths: Torah, Bible, Qur'an

Practitioners of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam have been called people of the book for their shared belief in the importance of divine word. A recent acquisition of a remarkable medieval Torah allows the Getty for the firs time to represent the three faiths through their sacred books. The display showcases the manuscripts, each rendered in glowing gold and luminous colors on parchment: a ninth-century North African Qur'an, a fifteenth-century Christian Bible, and a rare thirteenth-century Torah from Northern Europe.
