The People's Bible

by StirlingCastle 10. November 2011 02:43

This Sunday visitors to Stirling Castle will be able to take part in a very unique event.  The People’s Bible, a project which is aiming to create the first ever digital handwritten Bible  will end its national tour at the castle’s Chapel Royal.  The project marks the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, so It seems fitting that the project should come to a close in Stirling Castle where James was raised and educated in the princes tower which now forms part of the newly refurbished Royal Palace.

Visitors write their verses with a digital pen which connects to the website and within minutes those actual handwritten verses are visible there.  It  will be the last opportunity for the people of Scotland to get involved before the completed bible is presented in a special service on 16th November at Westminster Abbey.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to anyone wishing to attend the event, and I myself am looking forward to contributing to this historical and special project.
