Exhibitions

During the IOSOT congress, some additional museum exhibitions will be held. The first will be an exhibition of very old Bibles and books related to biblical studies, hosted in the subterranean university library, while the second will be an exhibition of artefacts related to the biblical world, hosted in the university art museum. A third exhibition will present art works on biblical themes by (South) African artists, also hosted in the university art museum. This exhibition will be done in collaboration with the Iziko National Gallery in Cape Town. During lunch hours, there will be free guided tours through the three exhibitions. Further information will be made available in the IOSOT programme book (online, and in print).
