The Morgan Picture Bible was designed to bring selected Old Testament stories into the 13th-century, the time of its original audience. The creators' original intention was to make these stories not only powerful and meaningful, but as appealing and entertaining as possible by placing biblical heroes in contemporary castles, cathedrals, and other daily settings.
This milestone publication marks the first time this manuscript has been presented to the public unbound and so makes the same stories powerful and informative for today's museum visitor. The volume is beautifully illustrated, evoking the color and richness of the original.
