The Wiedmann Bibel in Mainz
On February 12th one of the world’s oldest museums of printing has received another beautiful artifact for its collection. Martin Wiedmann presented the number three of the Wiedmann Bible’s ART-Edition to the department head for cultural affairs, Marianne Grosse, and the museum’s director, Dr. Annette Ludwig.
The name Gutenberg still stands as a symbol of media innovation. His invention changed history. The most extraordinary pieces the museum has on display, are the first-ever printed books using Gutenberg’s technique – 42-line Bibles dating back from 1455.
The Gutenberg Museum will present the ART-Edition and the interactive Bible kiosk until mid-March. Visitors can immerse themselves in the world of the Wiedmann Bible and browse through it. Afterward, the extraordinary gift will be integrated into the exhibition «Our Most Beautiful … «, which will be on display until the end of 2019.
