Ackland Museum’s “Five Faiths” Project

The Five Faiths Project introduces, with original works of art from the Ackland’s multicultural permanent collection, the beliefs and practices of Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism – religious traditions that have a strong presence in North Carolina and generally in American society today. It is with the idea of assisting communication between these new faith communities and the established Protestant community that the Project came into being. For more information, please visit their website.

Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies

Duke University has been a major center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies for over fifty years.  Duke University collaborates on many projects with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University in the Joint Program for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.  For more information, please visit the CMRS website.

Permanent Collections at the Nasher Museum of Art (Duke University)

The European Collection

The Nasher Museum of Art has a growing collection of European paintings, sculpture, prints and drawings from the Renaissance to the present. In 1998 the museum was given an important group of Old Master paintings, which include a late 14th century Florentine Madonna of Humility, a Saint John the Baptist by Il Bacchiacca (Francesco Ubertini), a Portrait of a Young Woman by Catharina van Hemessen, a large Garland of Flowers with the Torment of Christ by Daniel Seghers and Simon de Vos, Jan van Kessel’s Creation of the Birds and Fishes, a Feast of Herod from the Studio or Circle of Peter Paul Rubens (known in the literature as the ex-Linde panel), and an Architectural Capriccio with Figures by Gian Paolo Panini.

Three-dimensional works include Spanish polychromed wooden figures of a 17th-18th century Christ Child as Salvator Mundi and a 16th-century Saint Margaret with original estofado technique.

In 1996, the museum purchased a rare set of 123 hand-tinted lithographs of the Holy Land made in 1842-1844 by British artist David Roberts.

The Brummer Collection of Medieval and Renaissance Art

The Brummer Collection is comprised of over 250 pieces which span the 9th through 16th centuries and represents regions throughout Europe. Highlights include several recent discoveries of Gothic sculptures “lost” during the French Revolution.  A rare statue head fragment from Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris has been identified as one of the three Christian virtues that flanked the Virgin on the north transept portal. Other statue heads in the collection have been attributed to the cathedrals of Noyon and Chartres, and the destroyed abbey of Moutiers-Saint-Jean. The well-preserved, innovated Samson capital from the  Burgundian abbey of Savigny illustrates the development of religious communities and travel along the pilgrimage roads.  Important ensembles of Romanesque architectural sculpture include the portal archivolts from the Cathedral of Alife Cathedral, four magnificent life-sized reliefs of Apostles from Sarlat, and cloister sculptures from the abbey of Saint-Martin at Savigny.
