Living History Demonstration: Printing Processes in the Time of King James
With Mark Barbour, Executive Director of the International Printing Museum, on September 21.
On Wednesday, September 21, the Biola Bell Tower will not only mark a memorial to the history and legacy of Biola University, but also the remembrance of an even greater history and legacy; that of the King James Bible.
Mark Barbour, Executive Director of the International Printing Museum, located in Carson, CA, will be near the Bell Tower giving demonstrations of the early printing and production techniques that initially produced a version of the Bible that has become unforgettable in it’s influence within Christian and worldwide culture. 15 of the facsimile pages of the 1611 KJV Bible being produced for the University will be raffled to various community members throughout the presentation.
This event is a part of Biola University’s Year of the Arts, and is being hosted in conjunction with the Bible as Art exhibit currently on view in the University Library. The Bible as Art exhibit has been arranged in celebration of the 400th Anniversary of the King James Version of the Bible, and features Biola’s special collection of rare Bibles and facsimile pages from other famous versions.
Sponsored by the Torrey Honors Institute, the Living History Demonstration by Mark Barbour brings the heritage of the KJV and Biola’s interest in preserving the Bible’s legacy directly into the hands and minds of its students and community members. Stop by between 11:30 am and 1 pm, under the Bell Tower to experience the history firsthand.
