The museum’s thematic areas have been informed by the mapping of 70 events and incidents related to the freedom of religion and belief in Sri Lanka. This chronology begins in 1815 with the signing of the Kandyan Convention which consolidated the island as a unitary state under the British colonial powers and established a formal association between that state and religion. This catalogue briefly charts 200 years of freedom of religion and belief in Sri Lanka, pointing to key themes, actors, artefacts and is intended as a quick guide and resource to the contents of the museum.
