Religion. Healing. Dividing
Peace is the heart of almost every religion, but countless wars are waged in the name of God. Religion reconciles, but it also creates conflict. Despite causing conflict, religion offers a forum: a space for dialogue between people from different backgrounds and ideologies.
The thematic exhibition Religion. Healing. Dividing highlights the duality of religion in war and peace. Drawing on various cultural artefacts and older and contemporary art, the exhibition sketches the relationship between different religions, in conflict and in reconciliation.
On November 11, the Peace Carillon will resound on the domain of the Park Abbey. The carillon is all about peace and reconciliation. It is a replica of the original carillon: it will count 40 bells and weigh 9,500 kg!
On Monday 10 September, the 40 bells of the new carillon arrive at the abbey site. They will be placed on the central inner court (Neerhof) for a while, so everyone can admire them on Tuesday 11 and Wednesday 12 September. Come then to take a look at Park Abbey!
