The exhibit is a selection of 27 treasures from the collection of early printed Bibles bequeathed to the library in 1982 by Milton Stover Carothers, Director of FSU’s Presbyterian Center, in memory of his parents Julia Stover and Milton Washington Carothers.

Book of Kings, King of Books offers a new example of the multi-faceted collaborative effort between The Florida State Unviersity Libraries and the History of Text Technologies (HoTT) program. The exhibit finds its direct origin in the graduate seminar “The Bible as a Book (13th-18th c.)” that François Dupuigrenet Desroussilles, professor in the Religion Department and HoTT faculty, has been teaching every year in Special Collections since 2009. 

The online exhibit was created by Special Collections assistant Lindsay Ogles (FSU Class of 2012).
