Spectator Readers Only Exclusive: Living with gods exhibition breakfast and curator talk

Saturday 17 March 2018, 08.45-11.00
British Museum
£24.65 per person, no concessions

Join us for an exclusive morning view of Living with gods: peoples places and worlds beyond on Saturday 17 March.

Beliefs in spiritual beings and worlds beyond nature are characteristic of all human societies. By looking at how people believe through everyday objects of faith, this exhibition provides a perspective on what makes believing a vital part of human behaviour. Seeing how people believe, rather than considering what they believe, suggests that humans might be naturally inclined to believe in transcendent worlds and beings. Stories, objects, images, prayers, meditation and rituals can provide ways for people to cope with anxieties about the world, and help form strong social bonds. Together, the objects in the exhibition offer a fresh perspective on practices of belief and how they are hugely important for societies, as well as individual believers.

Spectator readers will enjoy a breakfast in the Great Court Restaurant with an introduction from the exhibition curator and the opportunity to enter the exhibition before it opens to the public.

Exhibition supported by the Genesis Foundation. With grateful thanks to John Studzinski CBE.
