Curator Elisabeth O’Connell introduces the British Museum's exhibition: Egypt Faith After The Pharaohs. Our video includes an insight to how Christianity came to Egypt, how many temples were recycled - including an Islamic monument reuse for a gravestone, details of 'black magic,' where many appealed to any and every 'God' to fulfil their charms, and taste of the Cairo Genizah showing the strong relationship between Muslims, Christians and Jews, demonstrating multiculturalism at its best. Enjoy! :)
