About Historic Bibles About 3,000 years ago, the Creator of the universe spoke to us through words written "by the finger of God" (Deut. 9:10). Prior to printing, the Bible was written by hand, on papyrus or parchment, often taking years to produce a single copy. Despite the cost, Bibles were as artistic as they were exacting, and many stunning illuminated texts survive. With the advent of printing
in 1454, the Bible became available to the laity and hastened the Reformation and the Renaissance. To preserve for posterity a leaf from an historic Bible is thus to be connected to the ongoing creativity of God's word. From early on, Christians held on to fragments of old copies or old versions of the Bible. Jews, on the other hand, meticulously copied from worn-out copies and then respectfully disposed of the older copies. Either way, the "preservation and presentation of rare historic Bible leaves" is one link in that great chain of witnesses to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
