The 1611 appearance of a new English translation of the Bible, known variously as the Authorized Version or the King James Version, is a landmark of cultural and religious history. In celebration of the 400th anniversary of this event, Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC), in collaboration with the Vancouver School of Theology, Regent College and University Hill United Church, presents an exhibition that explains the origins and significance of this book.
You are invited to visit the presentation and learn about this remarkable story of scholarship and sophistication that has broadened our social and religious understanding. A catalogue of the exhibition is also available.
The 400th Anniversary of the King James Bible 1611-2011 runs through October 2011 at RBSC, located on level one (the lower level) of the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre.
