Leaving the necropolis, we went to visit the Religious and Art Museum opposite Glasgow Cathedral under the hillside. Walking into this free museum, although there is not much content on display, as a professional museum of religion and art, it still allows us to learn a lot of knowledge. The most important thing is that most of the exhibits here are introduced in Chinese, which makes us look very pleasing to the eye. After introducing Shakyamuni’s Buddhism, he also introduced major religious beliefs such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Sikhism, and Muslims. Such a concentrated introduction of religious content is rare. At the same time, all aspects of religious life are on display, from birth to death, from health to happiness, from war to persecution. Related topics were promoted through objects, pictures and text. As this part of the exhibition hall stated in the "Introduction to Religious Life": "Religious rituals define the different stages of life from life to death, and even after death. People try to approach the gods through prayer, meditation, singing, music, and dance. Sometimes, religious beliefs contribute to the existing social system; but on the other hand, it can also cause revolutions, wars, and death. Religion can also inspire people to do good, in order to be blessed in this life or to better prepare for the next life." Therefore, I quoted and recorded this part of the text entirely because after I read it, I felt that this short text contained a very profound truth in the world.
Although this theme museum is not large, it feels that the research and display of various religions in the world here is still very professional and comprehensive. It contains the main religions in the world and some regional religions.
This museum is better than expected. It compares and exhibits the history, development process and cultural relics of the major religions in the world. You can see many cultural relics and materials of Buddhism that we are familiar with.
Quite a small museum, but if you are a religious believer, I think it is necessary to visit here, because it does introduce the common sense of various religions in the world.
This is a very comprehensive museum about religion and religious art. Students who like religion can take a look. It contains some art works of almost all religions in the world. Not bad.
