How to use this map
This map shows the 78 sacred texts in the British Library's Online Gallery. Most of them (72) were prepared for the Library's summer 2007 exhibition Sacred. The exhibition dealt with the common ground of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and so the texts cover those three faiths. Over time we will gradually expand our Online Gallery with more items from other major world faiths.
You can view items by faith or date of origin. Use the text links in the panel to the left of the map to filter the selection of items shown. Click any marker on the map to display information about it and find out more. Navigate around, and zoom in or out, using the controls in the top left corner of the map window. Alternatively, browse a text only version.
