Art of Faith is a visually sumptuous series revealing outstanding examples of the art and architecture of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The films bring to life many of the greatest and most significant religious buildings through stunning photography and interviews with the people who know and love them.

The programs are filmed in twenty-seven key locations in eighteen countries, from Russia to the USA, India to Egypt, and the UK to Hungary. The architecture and art of each building is explored by rabbis, priests and imams, as well as congregation members and art historians, who explain the history of these sacred places and, in many cases, their importance today as places of lived faith.

Art of Faith enables viewers to enter into the lives of these people and gain a deeper understanding of the three Abrahamic faith traditions as well as the history and art of these great and glorious buildings.
