Edition carried out in an artisanal way, combines biblical texts of the Old and New Testaments in full version faithfully translated from the original languages, Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic, with more than 700 miniatures, borders and capitulars selected from the 124 most beautiful medieval manuscripts of the Christian Liturgy between the sixth and early sixteenth centuries.

A unique Bible that contains the essence of the inaccessible and most beautiful medieval codices.
This edition of the Golden Bible is without doubt the largest and most complete in the Christian world. It has been carried out by the Biblical School of Jerusalem and it has taken more than 50 years of research, with the collaboration of the best experts in Biblical Literature and Sacred History, Codicology and Paleography to complete a work of such magnitude. An arduous task that has allowed to unify the different circumstances of time and authors, of mentalities and styles, always starting from the reliable translation of the original Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic languages.
The result is the best and most accurate edition of the sacred texts, carried out with the utmost rigor and fidelity, and endorsed by worldwide recognition.

It has a chronological synopsis that compares the Biblical History with the Universal History and, finally, also has the right comments to discover “The Book of Books”.
