One Word, many languages

As part of the Cathedral's 'Curious about Scripture' year, a new display was set up in the 'Inspire' zone under the bell tower. It contains various versions of the Bible: above, we see the Hebrew Old Testament, Greek New Testament and a Latin (Vulgate) edition.

A copy of the Douay Bible, the first Catholic English translation, is also included, along with more modern versions and some books used for interpreting the Scriptures. The display can be seen whenever the Cathedral is open (daily, 8:30am-6pm).
