Thomas Jefferson's Bible Coming To Denver

The new History Colorado Center will host Jefferson's Bible: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, March 22­–May 27. This special limited-engagement viewing offers an intimate window into Jefferson's religious philosophy and extraordinary mind. Visitors also explore the story behind the intensive effort undertaken by Smithsonian conservators to preserve this fragile, yet remarkable, piece of American history.

"Making this historic treasure publicly accessible was a key goal behind its conservation, and we are so pleased to lend it to History Colorado, a Smithsonian Affiliate, so we can share it with History Colorado Center audiences in Denver," said Harry Rubenstein, curator at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History.

"We are delighted to partner with the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History to bring such a fascinating and rare item from our nation's past to the History Colorado Center to share with the public," said Ed Nichols, President& CEO of History Colorado. "Given the specialized light, temperature and humidity controls required, this is a prime example of the capabilities the new History Colorado Center provides when objects of such importance are put in our trust."

"As we approach the first anniversary of the opening of the History Colorado Center, it's fitting to host such a significant national story and a wonderful opportunity to spark greater interest and engagement in history," said Dr. William J. Convery, History Colorado State Historian.

Funding to bring  Jefferson's Bible to the History Colorado Center was provided by the Grant family, the Private Client Reserve of U.S. Bank, Monticello Associates, Inc. and contributions to the  Make History Colorado! capital campaign.
