University of South Carolina Acquires Rare Medieval Bible
Small enough for monks and friars to tote around, the new Bible is rare because it was written in Oxford, England, around 1240 and is in pristine condition. It was purchased for $77,000 with support from New York’s B. H. Breslauer Foundation and joins other valuable medieval holdings in the library’s Irvin Department of Rare Books and Special Collections.
