Gather all nations & tongues: Rare & Unique Bibles from Haverford College

As a collection of scripture sacred to both Judaism and Christianity, the bible is the most translated text in the world. In addition to serving a central place in the religious lives of millions of the world’s people, bibles themselves tell a fascinating story about the development of language, the movement of people, the history of technology, the wielding of power, and the transmission of culture. In this 400th anniversary year of the creation of the King James Bible (1611), we bring together a selection of rare and unique bibles – dating from the mid-13th to the 20th century – from the special collections of Haverford College.
