US students meet The Wiedmann Bible

When the exchange students from Los Angeles (USA) arrived in Bonn, they did not expect to see anything like this. They are participating in a program that is being organized by the Academy for International Education. On Monday (September 30th), they met with Martin Wiedmann, who introduced them to the only visual narrative of the complete Bible. The students visited the Garden of Eden via Virtual Reality or studied various Bible verses through the mobile App. Of course, they had a lot of questions for Martin and were very curious about the story behind this amazing artwork.

The Wiedmann Bible goes Romania

The Wiedmann Bible on Tour

ART-Edition for the Evangelical Church A.B. in Romania

Two years ago Erika Klemm could not resist. She had to come back to the booth of this unique visual narrative of the Bible. It fascinated and inspired her.

The surprise was huge when she received an email a few weeks ago. Martin Wiedmann asked if the Evangelical Church Romania would give him the honor to accept the Wiedmann Bible ART-Edition as a gift from him. Erika Klemm did not have to think twice. The EKR is a German-speaking Church in Romania.

On June 16th the time had come. Martin Wiedmann and his family arrived in Hermannstadt, Romania. Amongst the first ones to see the Wiedmann Bible were kids and officials. After a service at the Johanniskirche, Martin Wiedmann gifted the ART-Edition to the EKR.

It is the first Wiedmann Bible in Romania and highly appreciated as devotional paintings have a long tradition there.

The Wiedmann Bible ART-Edition is now showcased at the state consistory in Hermannstadt, Romania.

A Historic Day For The Wiedmann Bible

Longest Bible Makes History

Art and Theology united in Washington D.C. Event

Simply breathtaking! That sums the unfolding of the Wiedmann Bible up pretty well. Over 400 volunteers came together on June 1st to hold this German masterpiece created by Willy Wiedmann.

Hundrets of people came to see what this event was about and were amazed by the artwork and the story.  The Wiedmann Bible was unfolded for the very first time in the US at the historic Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. The event was arganized by the Museum of the Bible and Martin Wiedmann, the artist’s son.

“I would like to thank the Museum of the Bible and all the volunteers for their amazing help and outstanding engagement. It was an incredible experience,” says Martin Wiedmann. “You can’t put it into words. To see my father’s work in this historic place. The people’s reaction was overwhelming. Some even had tears in their eyes. That only encourages me to continue my mission.”

But what are we writing… see for yourself!

Historic Event in Washington

Museum of the Bible to Unfold Mile-Long Wiedmann Bible on the National Mall

Press Release by Museum of the Bible

Washington, May 8, 2019 – Museum of the Bible announces plans to unfold the nearly mile-long Wiedmann Bible facsimile along the Reflecting Pool at the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday, June 1, 2019, from 8 a.m.-noon. This event will be the first complete unveiling of the Wiedmann Bible in the United States and will require the assistance of 1,000 volunteers to unfold and hold the artifact. Volunteers will receive a commemorative T-shirt and free general admission to Museum of the Bible.

“Museum of the Bible is honored to be part of this historic event,” said museum president and CEO Ken McKenzie. “The Wiedmann Bible exhibit is one of the most popular at the museum, and yet, you can’t truly understand the artifact’s uniqueness until you see just how long it is. I encourage everyone who is able to literally reach out their hands and join me in making history on June 1.”

About The Wiedmann Bible:

The Wiedmann Bible is a continuous illustrated narrative of the Christian Bible. Containing 3,333 images and stretching 1,170 meters, it is the longest illustrated Bible ever created.

German artist Willy Wiedmann spent 16 years creating this Bible in his own unique style, called Polycon. This style was greatly influenced by his lifelong love of music, as well as by some of the major 20th-century, European, avant-garde movements such as Surrealism, Dadaism, Cubism and Abstract Expressionism. Wiedmann’s ultimate purpose for his work was simple: to engage people visually with the Bible. The original Wiedmann Bible is on display now at Museum of the Bible through September 8, 2019.

 The Wiedmann Bible was unfolded for the first time along the Elbe shore in Magdeburg, Germany, resulting in a new world record for the largest concertina book.

 “I am overwhelmed with joy. The Lincoln Memorial has been the site of many important historical events. Showing this unique visual narrative of the Bible here makes my heart overflow with gratitude,” says the artist’s son Martin Wiedmann. “When my father wanted to publish his work, he was rejected so many times. However, he never gave up. He said that God’s wisdom gave him the chance to finish what he started, and he believed that this work needed to be shared. Even if it did not happen until decades later. I am very thankful to the Museum of the Bible for making this possible.”
To Volunteer:

Museum of the Bible seeks volunteers to participate in this historic event. Each volunteer will hold up a section of the Wiedmann Bible until the entire Bible is displayed around the Reflecting Pool. This process will then be reversed to carefully return the Bible back into its container. Volunteers are encouraged to wear comfortable footwear. Register to volunteer here.

Heather Cirmo – Acting Director of Communications


Museum of the Bible is an innovative, global, educational institution whose purpose is to invite all people to engage with the history, narrative and impact of the Bible.

Intriguing artwork

It is different, it is colourful, it is challenging, as well as old and new at the same time. Visitors are intrigued by Willy Wiedmann’s artwork at the Museum of the Bible. Because this exhibition is different from others. The museum’s Lead Curator Amy Van Dyke will tell you why!

They did not expect to see something like this…

Art and Bible – Bible and Art….Other’s have done it before but the very first visitors of the Wiedmann Bible exhibition at the Museum of the Bible in Washington were not prepared for what they saw. They were in awe, impressed or moved to tears – even Martin Wiedmann himself.

“When I arrived on Monday and saw how beautifully everything was set up, I had tears in my eyes. The entire team of the Museum of the Bible did an amazing job. My father would have been to happy to see that his life’s work will finally help people engage with the Bible”.

Within the first two days hundreds of visitors have seen the exhibition. They were so kind to share their experience with us.

Nancy wrote: “I am amazed and fascinated by Willy Wiedmann’s astonishing life, talents and accomplishments, especially his Bible illustrations. He’s more than a 21st century Leonardo da Vinci given that he was also a musician and composer, author and publisher. What is even more impressive is that his son Martin, […] and his family were able to figure out how to publish Willy’s uniquely beautiful, illustrated Bible, and then merchandise, market and get it exhibited at the Museum of the Bible here in Washington.”

Kathleen wrote: “Thank you for sharing yours and your father’s amazing story with us. We couldn’t wait to recommend the exhibition to all of our friends. We look forward to keeping up with the collection and it’s journey. We wish you the best!”

German Bible Society to publish unique illustrated Bible

3,333 Bible illustrations by Willy Wiedmann depicting the Old and New Testament in two volumes

THE WIEDMANN BIBLE Art EditionThe Wiedmann Media AG and the German Bible Society will publish a one of a kind Bible Art-Edition by the end of 2017.  It depicts the complete Old and New Testament in 3,333 images and was painted by the German artist Willy Wiedmann.

The limited Art-Edition will be published in two volumes, containing a total of 1,740 pages, and in the colors white, cardinal-red, black, and gold. The images are complemented by the artist’s comments on his work as well as Bible verses from the revised Luther Bible 2017 from the German Bible Society.

“My father’s dream will finally come true: Making THE WIEDMANN BIBLE accessible to everyone. We could not have asked for a better partner as a distributor than the German Bible Society”, says Martin Wiedmann, son of the deceased artist.

Willy Wiedmann always wanted for his Bible to become accessible for Christians around the world. Because certain technologies were not readily available, he was not able to publish it during his lifetime. He therefore buried his vision and kept his Bible hidden in his gallery’s attic where it slipped into obscurity until his son revealed the artwork in 2014.

“…I felt that my work gave them something special and cause a feeling of content and even some kind of happiness. Ergo my conscious told me, if only these few people already benefited from my work why shouldn’t all Christians?” From Willy Wiedmann’s Bible Journal.

In order to make this project happen, Martin Wiedmann will produce this unique Art-Edition while the German Bible Society will be responsible for copy editing as well as distribution and sales. “THE WIEDMANN BIBLE is a very impressive artwork. It visually encourages people to engage with the Bible’s content actively. We are very pleased to include this unique book into our repertoire”, says Reiner Hellwig, the German Bible Society’s Chief Operating Officer.

4 colors art-editionThe limited Art-Edition will be published in German. You can reserve your copy on THE WIEDMANN BIBLE’s website. Editions in English and Spanish will follow after the initial German publication.

“THE WIEDMANN BIBLE is another step for our mission foundation: Disseminating the Bible and the opportunity of education with the help of it. Since THE WIEDMANN BIBLE depicts the complete Old and New Testament in images it speaks all languages”, says Horst Scheurenbrand, Director of International Programs of the German Bible Society.

In May THE WIEDMANN BIBLE started supporting the United Bible Societies’ project which helps people learn how to read and write by means of the Bible. Parts of the proceeds will be donated towards this project. Other parts will be used towards the distribution of THE WIEDMANN BIBLE to make it accessible to everyone.

ONLY 3,333 copies will be available. Reserve your personal copy today! Click HERE
