Featured Digital Exhibit: Divine Inspiration at Falvey

Divine Inspiration at Falvey Library

Digital exhibit Divine Inspiration: Revealing the Sacred in Biblical Texts and Imagery is now live on the Digital Library.

Jacob’s Dream, Gustave Doré



The digital version of the Divine Inspiration exhibit, featured in the Spring 24 issue of Mosaic, expands upon the themes highlighted in the physical exhibit installed on the first floor of Falvey Library (on display Fall 23-Spring 24).

This complementary digital exhibit showcases the historically significant Bibles featured in the physical exhibit cases with additional supplemental biblical material from Falvey Library’s Distinctive Collections.

Viewers can navigate the exhibit to investigate digitized materials pertaining to biblical translations, hand-press printing practices, the history of bible production and education, as well as biblical imagery, engraving practices, and the extremely prolific 19th century biblical illustrator, Gustave Doré. For those who are curious to learn more about bible production, history, and illustration, see the Bibliographical Resources section, which includes the Susan Dunleavy Collection Of Biblical Literature. 


Curators Meg Piorko (Distinctive Collections Librarian) and Mike Sgier (Distinctive Collections Coordinator) are excited to present the digital version of this exhibit to showcase more materials and details of materials from the physical exhibit to a much larger audience.
