Since the dawn of history, societies have turned to religious practices for moral guidance and to find a sense of solitude. Almost every religion is accompanied by oral and literary traditions that discuss ritual practices, laws and ethical conducts. The commandments and stories behind each one of them help to create and foster communities, equipping them with the knowledge to pass it down to the next generation. The preservation and publication of the religious texts on display are a testament to humanity’s quest for meaning, virtue and striving for the greater good. The collection contains some of the world’s first attempts of translating religious texts into different languages, intended to provide readers a better understanding of religious traditions around them.
