Christian angels on the South China coast [exhibition curatorship]

Research output: Non-traditional research outputCuratorship

Abstract

A photographic exhibition of the Christian tombstones of the Mongol period (13th and 14th centuries) from Quanzhou in Fujian Province in South China. Quanzhou was known to Western travellers as 'Zayton' (or 'Zaitun'] and it was from this port city that Marco Polo left China in 1292. Since 1997 it has gained fame as the 'City of Light' - from the title given to the manuscript of a Jewish merchant, Jacob d'Ancona, who allegedly spent six months in the city in 1271-1272.
