TELLING TALES OF KING JAMES' BIBLE
2 MAY- 30 JUNE 2011
Sheffield Cathedral, Church Street, S1 1HA.
King James' Bible was not the first English bible. His translators recycled the work of their predecessors. So why was this version of the Bible so influential, and why are we still talking about it 400 years later?
Discover the answer to these questions and many more with Telling Tales, the educational exhibition produced by the Department of Biblical Studies in partnership with Museums Sheffield, Sheffield Cathedral and the Humanities Research Institute.
THE BOOKS THAT MAKE THE BIBLE
From the 1500s to the present day
24 MAY - 30 MAY, (see below for times).
Sheffield Cathedral, Church Street, S1 1HA
Running in tandem with the exhibition Telling Tales of King James' Bible, this special showcase will guide visitors through the history of English bible production.
Peruse a well-loved local copy of the bible King James loathed. Contemplate your own contribution to the "defaced" bible previously exhibited at the Gallery of Modern Art in Glasgow. And discover why two South Yorkshire contributions to the BBC's History of the World have a place in the King James story.
