New 2011 Museum Exhibit Opening Soon!

Museum Curator Julia Ritter has been hard at work the last few weeks, preparing the Antiochian Heritage Museum for our upcoming exhibit "Structure and Symbolism in Stone: The Architecture of Ancient Christian Syria."

The exhibit focuses on the beautiful stone architecture of churches and homes from 5th Century Christian Syria, which has been remarkably well preserved. The exhibit features photographs from American exhibitions from Princeton to the region between 1899-1905.

As always, there will also be item on exhibit from our permanent collection including icons, and religious artifacts from the Eastern Orthodox Christian Heritage as well as an original 1617 King James Bible.

Check back to find out details about the Exhibit Opening!
