Chester Beatty's A to Z: from Amulet to Zodiac

The Chester Beatty offers an A-Z checklist of its treasures, providing visitors with a broad insight into the library's wide-ranging and valuable collection.

This curators’ choice show features works that are seldom on display, spanning Western, Islamic and east Asian cultures. Highlights include ancient amulets from the Christian, Hebrew, Islamic and Hindu faiths; 18th-century embroidered badges from the Chinese imperial court; and a rare 1576 guide to the "most famous islands of the world" including a chapter devoted to Ireland.

The exhibition is described by The Irish Times as "a dazzling showcase of human creativity, filtered through one curious sensibility. A compendium of riches from an incomparable collection."

Mon-Fri 10.00-17.00 Sat. 11.00-17.00 Sun. 13.00-17.00
