22 April-4 September. In celebration of the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible (1611) the Bodleian Library tells the fascinating story of the English language's most frequently printed book.

The exhibition explores the religious, political and intellectual context of the times whe the book was first published, and examines events that led to its publication. The book's translation was commissioned by King James I, and was an eight-year process that involved 47 scholars from Oxford, Cambridge and Westminster.

The exhibition draws on the Bodleian's own collection as well as the resources of libraries connected to the University of Oxford and elsewhere.

Mon-Fri 9.00-22.00. Sat 10.00-16.00
