In 2014, the museum was lucky enough to loan the only full-sized reproduction of the Codex Amiatinus from Abbadia San Salvatore, in Tuscany.
Following the loan, Bede’s World has been granted permission to commission a second full-sized reproduction for permanent display.
As well as approaching trusts and foundations, we are asking our visitors and supporters to help us raise money towards the purchase of the facsimile and the costs of displaying the book.
Without you this project won’t be possible. The name of each donor will be recorded in a special book which will be produced to commemorate the arrival of the Codex next year.
2016 will mark the 1300 year anniversary of Ceolfrid setting off on his journey to Rome with the Bible, therefore it is a fitting time for the return of a facsimile.
