An exhibition of Modern Ecclesiastical Art, Architecture and Painting opens on Tuesday, November 23, at the Museum of Byzantine and Christian Art in downtown Athens.

The exhibition, hosted in tandem with the 2nd Scientific Symposium on Modern Greek Ecclesiastical Art organised by the University of Athens' School of Theology, will feature works by contemporary architects and iconographers.

The museum was founded in 1914 and houses more than 25,000 exhibits, including rare collections of pictures, scriptures, frescoes, pottery, fabrics and manuscripts, and copies of artifacts from the 3rd century AD to the late medieval era.

Situated at 22 Vassilissis Sophias Avenue, it is considered one of the most important Byzantine Art museums in the world.

The exhibition will run through November 28.
