Faculty of Divinity


A new resource for teachers and learners, designed to support Religious Education and the arts and humanities at Key Stage 3.

The Faculty of Divinity is proud to present a new resource aimed at engaging school students with Cambridge's rich collections of religious treasures, artefacts and manuscripts.

The new interactive website showcases fifty of Cambridge's most unusual religious treasures, from classical sculpture to Islamic art, medieval architecture to contemporary photography. Through the site's TreasureQuest, students can complete quizzes and challenges, absorbing the powerful multifaith stories represented by the objects.

We are delighted to be able to include objects, chosen by academics and experts from across the University, and drawing attention to the religious histories and symbolisms of its heritage collections. 

We invite teachers and students to explore the site and make it their own - whether as a classroom resource, for independent study, or as a first step on a journey to the study of religion in Higher Education.

50 Religious Treasures of Cambridge is a collaborative project conceived by Laura Jeffreys of the Faculty of Divinity's access and outreach team and funded by the University's Widening Participation Project Fund as part of the faculty's school engagement initiatives.

The online resources compliment our programme of school visits and public engagement activities, including 'Treasure Quest' study days and Religion and Art taster sessions. For more information about the project, or if you wish to arrange a school visit, please contact .
