Understanding Sacred Texts

Understanding Sacred Texts

Sacred-Discover what we share: From 27 April – 23 September 2007 the world's greatest collection of Jewish, Christian and Islamic holy texts, (78 in all) where exhibited side by side for the first time, and visited by over 200,000 people at The British Library. This interactive, animated tutorial (designed to accompany the exhibit) allows you to learn about the similarities and differences in Judaism, Christianity and Islam by asking faith leaders and atheists to describe their opinions on the sacred texts.

I find this a very approachable way for students to hear a variety of comments on various sacred texts.  The people who speak in the learning object are throughtful and articulate, and the ideas can promote some nice discussions in a classroom or online setting.
