Great and Manifold Blessings: The Making of the King James Bible

Tue 18 January 2011 - Sat 18 June 2011

University Library

This exhibition at the University Library looks at the history of translation of the Bible into English, culminating in the famous King James Version of 1611, described as one of the greatest works in the English language. The exhibition includes manuscripts produced by the men who worked on the translation, pamphlets giving feedback on the new Bible (which was not received with universal approval) and copies of some of the Library's rarest bibles, including the Gutenberg Bible and the so-called "Wicked Bible".

Cost: Free
