The School of Theology Library holds extensive Bible collections, including the vast Massachusetts Bible Society Collection, containing approximately 4500 items covering 1500 languages into which the Bible or parts have been translated. These combined collections contain nearly 75% of the early Bible editions cited in The Book of a Thousand Tongues. The Kimball Collection contains our oldest materials, including a Latin Bible from 1497. For more information, visit the Biblical Collections page.
The lists below were compiled by Dr. Christopher Boyd Brown, Associate Professor of Church History at the Boston University School of Theology. They include early Bibles housed at the STH Library Special Collections, as well as early Bibles we can offer access to through microform.
