The St. John’s Bible at Berea College continues a long tradition of making valuable texts available for viewing by students, faculty, staff and the public. In addition to the St. John’s Bible, the Hutchins Library Special Collections and Archives includes many other rare manuscripts, early printed Bibles and sacred texts.
