Exhibition in Jerusalem presents the oldest known manuscript of Jewish prayers

The oldest known Book of Jewish Prayers is on display in "The Book of Books" exhibition at the Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem for four weeks only. This unique Medieval Manuscript of Jewish Prayers and other Texts is approximately 50 pages long and dates to the first half of the 9th century CE. The manuscript, written on parchment, includes a number of liturgical and non-liturgical compositions which appear to be Babylonian in style and content. A partially preserved Shaharit (morning) prayer for the Sabbath and a Haggadah for Passover appear in this manuscript—making them the earliest attestation of these primary liturgies in the history of Judaism. In antiquity, this manuscript most likely belonged to an individual or a family and was probably handed down from generation to generation throughout the centuries. In-depth research is currently being carried out on the

Major, rare exhibition opens at the Bruce Museum, displayed in multiple galleries

One of the largest and most varied collections of Northern Baroque art assembled anywhere in recent decades will be on view at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich beginning this fall. Northern Baroque Splendor, The HOHENBUCHAU COLLECTION from: LIECHTENSTEIN. The Princely Collections, Vienna will be displayed across multiple galleries at the Bruce beginning on September 20 and continuing through April 12, 2015.

A selection of some 80 paintings from The Hohenbuchau Collection was recently shown at the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart in Germany (11/08/2013 – 02/23/2014), and paintings from The Collection are regularly being

Extraordinary exhibition of works from the Museo Reina Sofia opens in Florence

Starting 20 September 2014 Palazzo Strozzi in Florence will once again be shining the spotlight on modern art with a major new event devoted to Pablo Picasso, one of 20th century painting's greatest masters. Picasso and Spanish Modernity has put together a broad selection of works by the great master, from the collection of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, in an attempt to stimulate a reflection on his influence on every aspect of art in the 20th century, and on his interaction with such leading Spanish artists as Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Juan Gris, María Blanchard and Julio González. The exhibition explores the major themes developed throughout the career of a painter who had the greatest impact on the history of the 20th century: art reflecting on art and on the relationship between the real and the super-real and between nature and culture, the artist's heartfelt involvement in the

British Museum exhibition explores a pivotal 50 year period that transformed China

The exhibition explores the years 1400 – 1450, a pivotal 50 year period that transformed China during the rule of the Ming dynasty. Bureaucrats replace military leaders in the hierarchy of power, the emperor’s role changes from autocrat to icon, and the decision is taken to centralise, rather than devolve, power. The exhibition includes rare loans of some of the finest objects ever made in China, shedding light on this important part of world history that is little known in Europe. China’s internal transformation and connections with the rest of the world led to a flourishing of creativity from what was, at the time, the only global superpower. This period for China was a time of extraordinary engagement with the world and of fascinating cultural diversity. The admiral Zheng He opened up China’s maritime history, sending treasure ships to Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. China enjoyed a period of unprecedented global contacts from

Brussels chocolate museum, featuring a Willy Wonka-style factory, opens to sweeten senses

It likes to call itself the "country of chocolate" and now Belgium has a new treat for visitors: a museum dedicated to the confectionary featuring a Willy Wonka-style factory and cocoa tree jungle. Chocolate is a national treasure in Belgium. It is home to such illustrious brands as Godiva, Neuhaus, Leonidas and Cote d'Or. And the museum opening Saturday, in a former chocolate factory in the capital Brussels, will showcase its love of the brown stuff. "The Belgian passion for chocolate has never been denied and we have become 'the country of chocolate,'" the museum's designer Henri Dupuis said. At the heart of the Belgian Chocolate Village, as the museum is called, cocoa trees and other tropical plants grow in a lush greenhouse. Visitors to the museum in the northwest Brussels neighbourhood of
