KJV App

August 4, 2011

I’ve just had word of a new “app” on the King James Bible celebration/exhibition by the Bodleian Library (Oxford) for iPhone, iPad and Android devices:

Cheap enough at 69 pence for the iPhone!

    I’d just like to say that this exhibit (“Manifold Greatness”) at the Bodleian is amazing. When I was in London for SBL-Int, I took one day to go up to Oxford and I spent hours at this exhibit. One of the most amazing items to me was the 1534 edition of Tyndale’s NT that was the personal copy of Anne Boleyn. Wow. And to think that her husband was responsible for the death of both of them… albeit for different reasons. And it was so fascinating to see the quarto size of those pages for this personal copy (the stack of pages was as tall as the width of the codex) compared to the larger public Bibles used in churches. And they also had on display one of the oldest known copies (~1390) of Wycliffe’s Bible. The whole exhibit was amazing… and the website is very informative and well done.
