The literature of the antiquity long held the conviction that the wise men from the east were Persians. That being said, the testimony of the gospels that the Magi hailed from the east does not necessarily denote that east as geographically opposed to the west in contemporary understanding. Recent research reveals a necessity to seriously reconsider the translation into Greek of the basic terms, which for us have come to be traditionally known as “gold, frankincense and myrrh”…
The exhibition is organized by the State Museum for the History of Religion, Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography (Kunstkamera) of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the International Centre for Islamic Research. It is one of the first results of the historico-ethnographic expedition that worked from 15 until 31 March 2017 within the framework of the project “Material world of the Qur’an (daily life in Arabia at the time of the Prophet)”, undertaken jointly by The Kunstkamera, Leiden Research Institute for Rational Monotheism (President — Aslbek Musin) and the Journal “Manuscripta Orientalia”, with the aid of the Ministry for Endowments and Religious Affairs of the Sultanate of Oman.
