The Story of the English Bible
Friday 13 May – Wednesday 15 June
To tie in with the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, All Hallows by the Tower is pleased to present a brand new exhibition tracing the origins and development of the Bible in the English language.
This display of artefacts and bibles through the centuries depicts the evolution of the Word of God from the visual to the written, from 4th and 5th century oil lamps depicting bible stories to copies of the 1953 Coronation Bible.
The exhibits include Hebrew, Arabic, Latin & Greek manuscripts, a manuscript and first edition Wycliffe Bible, not to mention Tyndale, Coverdale, Bishops, & Geneva bibles, as well as two beautiful first edition King James’ bibles.
These rare and important items are being loaned to All Hallows by the Tower by the Museum of the Book in Limehouse (020 7987 9960), and they are very grateful for their collaboration in this project.
Open Monday to Friday 8am to 5.30pm, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5pm. Closed bank holiday weekends.
All are welcome – admission is free but donations are invited.
