The Bible is a book. It"s the Book, it"s books. The Bible is a source. The source of the three revealed religions Judaism, Christianity, Islam. The Bible is like an immense tree whose ramifications, over the centuries, have extended far beyond its land of origin. The Bible is a key. The essential key to grasping many of the realities of our culture. The Bible is the book from which millions of believers have drawn, draw and will draw the nourishment of their faith and their hope. It is also the book in which millions of men from all walks of life have meditated, meditate and will still meditate to better understand human destiny. The Bible is a huge repertoire from which artists have drawn their inspiration from. Imagine for a moment our museums without the inspired works of the Bible. They would be three quarters empty and, for certain periods, completely empty. Appreciating a painting, a sculpture, a piece of music, visiting a museum, without knowing even a little bit about the biblical themes which have governed most of artistic creation for centuries is like reading a book. text without knowing the language. For centuries, biblical data has been shared evidence, common evidence; of those which weave a life, a community, a culture, without even being always aware of it. In this box, you will find a tool to open the doors to entire territories of our culture and the keys to enter the world of art and ideas. You will find something to understand beyond appearances.
