Celebrate the 400th Birthday of the King James Bible during the month of October. From October 7th to November 2, 2012, the traveling exhibit “Manifold Greatness” will be on loan from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., through the sponsorship of the American Library Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities. The exhibit will be on display at UW’s Coe Library (follow the signs) and features reproduced materials relating to the composition and publication of the King James Bible in 1611.
The Manifold Greatness exhibit will be accompanied by several displays featuring the history of the Bible and its translation. At Coe Library, there will be two displays of Protestant Bibles to illustrate the history of English-language Bible translation since the Reformation. The American Heritage Center has a large display on translations into other European languages by Protestant and Catholic churches (available before October 1). Last but not least, the Albany County Public Library has an exhibit comparing historical Bible translations and their printings.
The film, Fires of Faith: The Coming Forth of the King james Bible, will be hosted by the Albany County Public Library at 2:00 p.m. on October 14, 21, and 28, 2012.
