Welcome to the Manifold Greatness Guide. This guide accompanies the Manifold Greatness traveling exhibit in honor of the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible, that was on display at Coe Library in October, 2012. Here you'll find online resources, bibliographies, videos of lectures, and more.
In celebration of the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, University of Wyoming Libraries partnered with the UW Religous Studies Program and the American Heritage Center to bring to Laramie the Manifold Greatness exhibit in tandem with a series of lectures and a variety of rare and popular book displays. Albany County Public Library also partnered with us to host a film series, Fires of Faith: The Coming forth of the King James Bible.
Manifold Greatness: The Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible, a traveling exhibition for libraries, was organized by the Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington, D.C., and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. It is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, with assistance from the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas, to mark the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible. The traveling exhibition was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and with partial funding by the Wyoming Humanities Council. The film series was made by BYUtv.
