LARAMIE, Wyo. - The University of Wyoming is displaying a traveling exhibit about the King James Bible.

The exhibit on the origins, creation and impact of one of history's most influential books opens Sunday and will be on display through this month at UW's Coe Library.

Last year marked the 400th anniversary of the first printing of the King James Bible in 1611. The exhibition not only highlights the dramatic tale behind the making of this great book, but also includes its influence on English and American literature, and its multifaceted impact on culture and society to the present day.

The exhibition provides a chronological narrative that focuses on the human side of the cultural landmark and explores the book's social, cultural, literary and religious influence over four centuries.
