Exhibition – Visages et Paysages des Chrétiens d’Orient – Dhuy, Belgium
August 28 => 14 h 00 min - September 3 => 20 h 00 min
« Visages et Paysages des Chrétiens d’Orient », exhibition organised by Fr. Christian Eeckhout, o.p., former member of the convent of Saint Stephen and of the École Biblique.
In the summer of 2022, for the very first time in Belgium, an exhibition of the oldest photographs of the holy lands of the Bible, taken on glass plates by the Lumière brothers and enlarged on black and white banners, photos of the archaeological excavations of Petra, Qumran and Gaza, as well as the current life of Christians in Jerusalem, in colour, are presented.
Who are the Eastern Christians? How do they live their faith? What are their faces and the landscapes where these communities have been living uninterruptedly for 2000 years?
The exhibition and a conference will tell us about what is lived in Jerusalem and in the lands of the Bible (Iraq, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Israel) and will give us the opportunity to admire the landscapes where the Christian communities live.
