About this Item

large 8vo. cloth, dust jacket. xi, (I), 260 pages. First edition, second printing. This is the first volume in a series based on the proceedings of the annual Hereford Conferences sponsored by the Scriptorium: Center for Christian Antiquities. The central aim of this innovative volume is to examine the many ways in which the Bible, as a manuscript, was given shape and identity by different communities of believers. The scope, both chronologically and culturally, is vast, beginning with an examination of the methodology of the scribes who produced the Dead Sea Scrolls, and concluding with new evidence for the propagation of the Scriptures some fifteen centuries later, at the dawn of the age of printing. Leading scholars from different disciplines have been brought together to investigate the many ways in which scribes and craftsmen created cultural artifacts which enhanced their reader's veneration for the holy texts and which, for literate and non-literate believers alike, often became sacred objects in their own right.
