176 | Henrik von Achen world of icons. (Fig. 17) For Orthodox, and particularly Romanian visitors, their spontaneous reaction was: “This is like home”! Some weeks later, when His Excellence bishop Macarie visited the exhibition in the evening, the exhibition was for a while turned into a prayer room with prayers and singing, each then finding his or her favourite icon to venerate and pray before. This certainly crossed the line from “neutral” albeit meditatively arranged exhibition of religious objects to a religious devotional practice focusing on the exhibits, or in which the icons were now imbedded. To the University Museum in Bergen, or at least to its director, this use of the exhibition by certain visitors or groups was quite unproblematic, as long as the exhibition itself and in its planning was not and was never meant to promote religion or to exhort visitors to engage in such practices.
