Sikirica Gallery will open an exhibition of Sacred Medicine: the worship of the patron saints and the spiritual dimension of medicine.
It is an informative mobile exhibition that was conceived in 2016, in cooperation with the Croatian Museum of Medicine and Pharmacy of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and the Croatian Catholic Medical Association Branimir Richter Zagreb.
The aim of the exhibition is to point to the connection between medical and pharmaceutical practice with Christian tradition and spirituality throughout the history of Western civilization, from the Jesus doctors, the Holy Luke Evangelist, and the holy Kuzma and Damian, through the patron saints of disease to modern hospitals and Caritas pharmacies.
The exhibitions highlight the sacredness of the call of doctors, pharmacists and all those who care for the health of their neighbors, because they do not only treat human bodies, but they strengthen their faith, hope and love by their healthy spirit, dedicated work and human warmth. That is why this exhibition and the occasion to remember not only the sacred doctors of the past, but also our self-sacrificing contemporaries who are selflessly cared for the sick and helpless by making daily physical and spiritual works of mercy.
The opening of the exhibition will be on Tuesday, April 17 at 19:00 and will remain open until April 25th.
