Explores a period during the reigns of the Ayyubid, Mamluk and Ottoman dynasties, when large numbers of pilgrims and scholars from all quarters of the Muslim world came to Palestine. This strong tide of religious sentiment gave scope to the develoment of Sufi thought through the madrasas, zawiyas and ribats, which multiplied throughout the land. Gathering the greatest, most learned persons, many popular centres enjoyed considerable prestige and encouraged the spread of a rarefied art that still today maintains all of its power of fascination. The Islamic monuments and architecture put forward by this exhibition clearly reflect the major dimensions of pilgrimage, sciences and Sufism.
Museum With No Frontiers carries out art, architecture and archaeology exhibitions where the pieces are not displayed in a closed space - but rather, where the monuments, places, and objects are presented in their place of origin and within their historical and cultural context.
