Interactive display at Library of Congress makes Bible come alive

Separation of church and state is enshrined in the U.S. Constitution but that doesn’t mean the Bible can’t be admired and appreciated by a public or government institution. Take the Library of Congress in Washington. It has an immense Bible collection, one augmented with modern technology. The interactive equipment available in the Library of Congress is making the Scriptures accessible to a high-tech generation, said Robert M. Sokol, project manager for the “New Visitors Experience” program at the largest library in the world. The most celebrated Bibles in the collection are the Gutenberg Bible and the Giant Bible of Mainz — proudly featured in the library’s Great Hall.
