Egypt's Mysterious Book of the Faiyum This exhibition on the Egyptian belief system will focus on an exquisitely illustrated Greco–Roman–period papyrus—the Book of the Faiyum—that describes the creation of the universe and depicts the daily journey of the sun god. This will be the first time in more than 150 years that the manuscript, which was divided up for sale in the 19th century, will be reunited.
