Stories of political and religious intolerance aren’t found only in history. Persecution, sometimes on a devastating scale, continues in our own lifetime.

This new exhibition at Lyveden features three stories of religious persecution, each told through a Magnum photographer’s lens How do they help us understand what it means to stand up for your faith and beliefs at any cost? What do these stories tell us about the place of faith and tolerance in the world today?

The exhibition features: Coptic Christians in Egypt by Abbas, Yazidis in Iraq by Moises Saman, and the Rohingya in Myanmar by Chien-Chi Chang.

Exhibition produced in association with the National Trust

To see the exhibition before the beginning of March you will need to pre-book a visit to Lyveden which is possible Monday or Friday. The usual open season starts on Friday 1st March.
