Pitts Theology Library's newest exhibition Word for Word, Sense for Sense: The English Bible in History and Worship explores the complexities of many of history’s most significant English translations of the Bible. The gallery invites visitors to investigate the translation of such influential works as the 1611 Authorized King James Version and the Great Bible as well as the lingering legacies of translators like Isaac Watts who translated the Psalms into songs and prayers cherished by the Church. The exhibition invites visitors into a new appreciation for the history of the many English translations of the Bible and the demands of translation.
This exhibition is curated by Brady Alan Beard, with Kim Akano, Alexandra Mauney, and Dr. Brandon Wason. Running from April 8th—July 12, this exhibition draws on the collections of Pitts Theology Library and items generously loaned by private collectors.
