BB SATURDAY MAV 16, 1998 RELIGION THE SALINA JOURNAL LaSALLE UNIVERSITY treasures collection of 200 Bibles Books dating to 1400s make up collection that includes 1535 Coverdale Bible By JENNIFER C.YATES Tita Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — In a dim basement str-LaSalle University, dark wood bookshelves line a back wall, filled with thousands of pages of the same story. : Some books are written in English, others :in Latin and Arabic. Some pages are illustrated with intricate engravings, hand made of wood more than four centuries ago. Rolled in ink, they were piiessed onto the books' pages of cloth or lambskin. -"More than 200 Bibles dating to the 1400s make up the university's Susan Dunleavy Collection, in memory of a student who died in a car crash in 1977. Dunleavy's father, Tim, donated money that funded the collection 20 years ago. jj'Ehe university, founded by the Christian. Brothers in 1863, has an enrollment of about 5,000 undergraduates and graduates. The campus is squeezed between row houses and pizza shops a few miles from downtown. Brother Daniel Burke, who founded the basement art gallery that houses the collection, keeps watch over the books. Exhibitions in the gallery often showcase the Bibles' exquisite illustrations, normally sequestered on a large bookshelf. LaSalle's English majors rely on the collection when they study the history of books, and their interest delights Burke. "It's enough to work with the students," he says. The collection's centerpiece is a 1535 Coverdale Bible, the first complete English translation published using the printing press. LaSalle's copy is one of only a handful of the first editions in North America. LaSalle's edition is missing only eight pages. The pages in the leather-bound book have not yellowed; indeed, the edges are still gilt, and the black ink is still dark. Its namesake, Miles Coverdale, did the translation from Latin and German. Flipping through the pages, Burke is still amazed how the translation matches modern versions. "That's 90 percent of what we have today," he says, reading aloud the first words in Genesis, the first book of the Bible. Donation made acquisition possible Thanks to a corporate donation, the university acquired the bible at a 1980 auction at Sotheby's for tens of thousands of dollars. "The Lord is good to poor but persistent collectors," acknowledges Burke, with a smile. Liana Lupas, a curator of the scripture collection at the American Bible Society in New York City, appreciates the rare edition. "For the first time," she says, "the complete English Bible became available in print." LaSalle's collection also includes two first editions of the King James Bible from 1611, at 20 pounds each positioned on the library's lowest shelf. More delicate books, with yellowed pages and frayed bindings, are kept under cover. The Quincuplex Psalterium, a first edition from 1509, is stored in a maroon leather box lined with green silk. Before the printing press, scribes created Bibles by writing each word by hand. Rare and expensive, the books were often chained to lecterns to avoid theft. Smaller books, such as the palm-sized ones that make up the Medieval Books of Hours, were used during private prayer services in 1475. Originally a history of early Bible illustrations, LaSalle's collection now includes modern editions and many translations from the last five centuries. The Gospels in Arabic and Latin, from 1591, was the first Bible ever translated into Arabic. With little funding, the university relies on donations for the collection and obtains many of the books through auctions. Burke considers himself fortunate to be near such books: "It's a great intellectual lesson. You're learning something all the time." The Associated Press Brother Daniel Burke keeps watch over LaSalle University's Bible collection, including the 1535 Coverdale Bible that he is holding. Mitt threatens World Council of Churches By The Associated Press c. 'ATHENS, Greece — A doctrinal rift is threatening to pull apart the World Council of Churches, the global assembly formed 50 years ago to unite Christianity. iilronically, the dispute between the. council's dominant Protestant denominations and its Orthodox Christian members involves is- siies that touch directly on the council's mission of inclusion: ordination of women and acceptance of < homosexuals and other ostracized groups. '. .i Boyle named pastor of Brookville church Orthodox leaders, supported by other conservative churches, are demanding the council backtrack on such liberal reforms. The dispute threatens even greater divisions — including a closer ecumenical bond between the Orthodox churches and the Roman Catholics, the only major Christian church not a full member in the 330-church World Council. The divisions also reflect the forces reshaping Christianity as its nearly 2 billion faithful prepare to celebrate 2,000 years since the birth of Jesus. "This is a reality sweeping the human family," said the Rev. James Morton, head of the Interfaith Center of New York. "The context has changed, people are now interested in a broader canvas."

Box 8005, Charlottesville, VA 22906 'Both your FAITH and your CHURCH GROW through REGULAR CHURCH ATTENDANCE There is a group of flowers which gardeners hold dear. They are perennials. Once the seed is planted, a perennial returns each summer after the winter snow. Not only do the cheerful colors and lush foliage appear once again, incredibly, they multiply! An occasional drink of water and sunshine is all they ask. There is another seed we can plant that will return to us manifold. That is the seed of God's love. Once planted in our heart, not even the chill of despair can destroy its beauty or faithful presence. Daily prayer, Bible study, and weekly workshop will keep the love of God alive in our hearts.
