Manifold Greatness: The Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible

 

The little-known story of one of the most widely read and printed books in the history of the English language is on display at the University of Wyoming’s Coe Library.

The traveling exhibition, “Manifold Greatness: The Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible,” features an extraordinary selection of rare books, manuscripts and works of art from several libraries’ extensive collections that share the story of the King James Bible in richly personal terms, from its origins and creation to its wide-ranging cultural, social and literary impacts.

The exhibition, which is on loan from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., will be at Coe Library through Oct. 31.

A series of lectures by religious experts and UW faculty members will be offered as part of the traveling exhibition:


The film, “Fires of Faith: The Coming Forth of the King James Bible,” will be shown at the Albany County Public Library at 2 p.m. Oct. 14, 21 and 28.
