On Wednesday 22nd February two students visited Gloucester Cathedral to look at the Interfaith Exhibition.

The exhibition was a series of large paintings by Russell Haines hung all around the cloisters. The paintings were portraits of people from dozens of different religions, faiths and belief systems. Next to each painting was a photograph of the person and a description of their faith or belief system.

As well as all the mainstream religions, there were paintings of people from religions the students had not heard of before, such as Zoroastrians and Baha’i, and of people you might not consider as a belief system, such as Rastafari and atheist.

The paintings were both beautiful and impressive as well as thought provoking. The students thoroughly enjoyed this interfaith experience.
