Text from the curator:

The exhibition brings into the public attention the bible collection of Baron Samuel von Brukenthal.
One of the best-selling books in history, the Bible has been a special attraction for modern-day collectors, fact that is also true for the Governor of the Grand Principality of Transylvania.
In Brukenthalisches Bibliothekskatalog, a library inventory drawn up after the death of the Baron, are mentioned over 30 Bibles in languages ​​like Latin, German, French, English and Hebrew etc.
The oldest Bible displayed in the exhibition is an incunabulum from 1478 printed in Nuremberg by Anton Koberger, while the latest is a Bible printed in Berlin in 1786. Among the exhibits there are also: six Bibles dated in the 16th century (from printers such as Froben or Robert Estienne), over ten editions of the 18th c. Bible (including the Bible Polyglotta Londinensia printed since 1657), two editions of the Biblia Latina (published in Tubingen in 1606 and 1609 respectively), a Bible in Welsh / Cymraeg (1718), a Biblia Hebraica (printed in Amsterdam in 1753) and, not in the least, editions of the Bible after Martin Luther, printed in Ulm, Halle etc.
