Biblia Sacra: The Bible as Book
October 12 – January 31, 2018
On display are rare and interesting items from our extensive Bible Collection, comprised of some 1500 volumes. The focus of the exhibit is on the Bible as book, to show the effect of historical conventions and varing printing and creative practices on the production and use of a single body of texts over time. Bibles printed and bound as early as 1491 and as late as 1935 can be seen in our cases, thematically organized to highlight early printing, family Bibles and provenance, different formats and bindings, and textual history.
Curated by Alvan Bregman and Kim Bell.
February 5 – April 27, 2018
