Item Description...
A companion volume to a major exhibition assembles seventy of the world's most significant biblical codices, reproducing in lavish detail an assemblage of rare scriptural copies, papyrus scraps, and vellum artifacts, complemented by authoritarian essays on the Bible's thousand-year transformation into a complex symbol of faith.

Publishers Description
Michelle Brown, former curator at the British Library, gathers together seventy fragile biblical treasures in this sumptuously illustrated volume that captures the development of both Bible and book, as well as a formative period of early Christian history. The book features a number of rare parchments, codices, illuminated manuscripts, and jeweled bindings, including new finds from the Monastery of St. Catherine's at Mount Sinai, Egypt, and the Niketas Bible of the 10th-century CE, one of the greatest examples of Byzantine illumination. Leading authorities in the field explore the early history of the Bible in the accompanying essays, revealing its transformation into the complex symbol of faith that it is today.
Michelle P. Brown is Professor of Medieval Manuscript Studies, University of London; Visiting Professor, Leeds University; Regional Programmes (and formerly Curator of Illuminated Manuscripts), British Library; Lay Canon and Chapter Member of Saint Paul's Cathedral, London.

BR's review  Mar 21, 2007
The pictures are exceptional. i can spend hours just looking through it. I have already loaned it to a church friend to share in her disciple bible study class. I have taken it in to church to share. I will be reading and looking at this book for the rest of my life.
A wonderful resource  Mar 8, 2007
Anyone who is truly interested in the Bible should add this book to his or her library. The essays honor the inspired nature of biblical texts without ignoring the reality of the very human nature of their authorship and preservation. And the photographs of the various pieces of scripture are beautifully done.
