Artefacts mostly come from living parishes and are used in religious services. Most attention is paid to liturgical objects of the majority oman Catholic Church for which the most splendid and representational sacralgoldsmith`s were made. The Lutheran Church, the reformed Christian Church and the Byzantine Rite Churches present their liturgical jewels to the public as well.
