Lunaville: It may "only" date back to the 16th century, but it could be argued that all bibles are fake. First, there are a plethora of versions of "the" Bible. There are questions of authorship, sequencing, and time gaps. Unless, this document was churned out two years ago in the back of a Grad Students hovel, I think it is still interesting.

I'm the sort of person who loves the Passages exhibit. I kind of wish I could go back and see it again, but it's expensive and I'd have no one to go with. It's not really fun to go to exhibits alone.


I only read the original Bible. You know, the King James Version.

Magorn: The funny thing is the Vatican is more often than not the ones doing the "ghostbusting" on miraculous objects , visions etc. They have a squad of expertly trained scientists and psychologists whose job it is to find rational, scientific explanations for so-called "miraculous" occurances. (think of them as Scooby and the Gang in roman collars)

zaier: Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: zaier: Why would somebody go to the trouble of using fancy gold ink on shiatty pieces of hide?

Your choices were pretty much stone/ceramics, papyri, parchment, or vellum, IIRC. I suppose if it is a forgery, the forger would have wanted something that looked and felt old, but implied that this book was important.

Perhaps they should have gone with actual vellum then, instead of hide. Vellum is made from skin, yes, but it is a very different material from what one would consider hide. That in the picture is certainly not vellum.


Yeah, but that's what I'm saying: if this is a fake (even a Medieval fake), the forger would have known better than to use "modern" vellum. Not being sure what they would have used, but assuming that it was less sophisticated, a obvious, durable choice would have been to write directly on hides.

I watched Eddie Griffin's stand up special "You Can Tell 'Em I Said It" this weekend. He had a routine about religion that was pretty spot-on...

"Christians think Jesus is the messenger, Muslims think Muhammed is the messenger... I say, 'Who gives a fark who the messenger is. Did you get the message?'"

Rik01: Well, this ought to throw gas on the fire of the religious nuts and conspiracy theorists.

BTW. The Bible was edited centuries ago to weed out a lot of crackpot sections written by nutcases -- and to possibly remove the text written by the only female disciple, Mary Magdaline. (Big anti-feminists back then.) That doesn't mean they managed to get them all.

Anyhow, it ought to be interesting.


oh, you're one of those people who think the books of the bible were all written by the figure the book is named for...how quaint
