Exhibitions

Sinai, Byzantium, Russia Orthodox Art from the 6th to the 20th century

The exhibition is dedicated to the Monastery of St. Catherine on Sinai. This is the most impressive exhibition of such material for the last thirty years. Not only the quantity - over 500 items, but, in the first place, the highest artistic value of the objects selected make this exhibition so significant and important. It is for the first time that works of chirch art performed by masters of Byzantium, Georgia and Russia are exhibited in the same context. The role of the Sinai monastery in the world culture and its historical connections with Russia is the focus of the exhibition. The exhibition is located in the Big Cathedral of Winter Palace, specially restored for this project. In conjunction with the exhibition the catalogue of 488 pages with full colour illustrations is published. The catalogue is prepared by the Hermitage curators, the publisher - Paul Holberton (London).
