2011 marked the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible. The KJB is one of the foundation stones of western culture, and of the modern English language.
The University of Canterbury possesses one of only two copies of the original 1611 printing in Australasia. This site was created to record an exhibition that took place in Christchurch to mark the anniversary. It also provides an introduction to research into the KJB being undertaken at Canterbury.
