The House of Mary in Ephesus

Direction: Manoël Pénicaud

“In the face of rising fundamentalism and exclusivist theologies, new keys are needed for a deeper understanding of the complexity of exchanges between Mediterranean religions.

It seems vital, amid debates about the clash of civilisations, to demonstrate that alienation and abhorrence of the other are not the required modalities of interaction between the religions of Mediterranean.”

Film presented for the exhibition “Lieux saints partagés” (“Shared Sacred Places”) at the Museum of Mediterranean and European Civilizations (MuCEM), Marseilles from April 29 to August 31, 2015. Follow this link to see the text about the exhibition (here in French).
