Neat Link: Manifold Greatness


A friend of our family’s has been centrally involved in the creation of a very helpful website on the creation and afterlife of the King James Bible. To visit the site, called “Manifold Greatness,” click here. The site, of course, was created to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the 1611 KJV. It is jointly produced by the Folger Shakespeare Library, Washington, DC, and the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, with assistance from the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas at Austin. The title Manifold Greatness, referring to the multi-faceted or “manifold” influence of the KJV, is taken from the version’s dedication to King James, which begins, “Great and manifold were the blessings” when God made James the king of England.
