A working replica of Gutenberg’s printing press.
ST. PETERSBURG – Florida International Museum will host “Ink & Blood: Sacred Treasures of the Bible,” premiering on Friday, Jan. 13. The show will run through Saturday, May 13.

The world’s largest, most comprehensive exhibition on the history of the Bible boasts an unprecedented collection of artifacts including authentic Dead Sea Scroll fragments, ancient Biblical manuscripts and 5,000-year-old pictographic clay tablets from ancient Mesopotamia.

The exhibit will offer a rare opportunity to see and experience how the modern English Bible evolved from ancient Hebrew text and learn how so many fought and died for the Bible.

William H. Noah, curator of the exhibition, worked with Biblical scholars from around the world to gather more than 100 Hebrew, Greek and Latin manuscripts and related artifacts. The show features a working replica of Gutenberg’s printing press which brought books – specifically the Bible – to the masses in the 15th century.

FIM hours will be extended for this special exhibition to: Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, noon to 6 p.m. Last admission will be 5 p.m. The exhibit will be closed for Easter.

Regular admission is adults $16, seniors and military $14, students $9 and toddlers 6 and under free.

The museum is at 244 Second Ave. N. Call 341-7900 or visit www.floridamuseum.org.
