New Rare Bible Display
April 10, 2023
The rare Bible display case in The Styberg Library now features a facsimile of the Gutenberg Bible in Latin (Vulgate) published in 1961 by Pageant Books (New York). In honor of Earth Month and the Center for Ecological Regeneration, the first volume of this two-volume folio set is open to the text of Genesis 1, which includes colorful marginal illustrations depicting the six days of creation. All are welcome to stop in and view the typographical and illustrative details of this work as well as consider the interpretation of the Genesis text with respect to the care and protection of God’s creation. This Bible will be on display from April to June 2023.
