Celebrating the King James Bible
Special Collections is proud to announce the opening of its newest major exhibit, “The Life and Legacy of the King James Bible,” which celebrates the 400th anniversary of the printing of this monumental work. The exhibit, located in Special Collections’ first floor gallery, is open during Special Collections’ operating hours. The library has also created an online version of the exhibit, which is available at http://lib.byu.edu/exhibits/kingjamesbible.
To supplement the exhibit, the World History & Culture blog will highlight individual Bibles from Special Collections’ holdings throughout Fall semester 2011. Check back periodically to see lavish medieval manuscripts, works by famed artists and book designers, extremely big and small Bibles, and other interesting items from the collections.
