    "Reel Religion" Exhibition at MoBiA

    New York's Museum of Biblical Art has just opened an exhibition about Bible films. Reel Religion opened on the 6th February and runs through until May 17th.

    The exhibition's centrepiece is a collection of 80 vintage film posters belonging to Father Michael Morris - Professor of Religion and the Arts at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology in California. There are also a number of costumes from various films, and a Doré Bible.

    There's a nice piece on the exhibition by Ben Walters of The Guardian who talks, in particular, about the ground breaking poster for 1898's Passion Play of Oberammergau the dimensions of which remain the standard today. There's also a light-hearted piece in Time Out New York
