The KJV in a Catholic Context (Manifold Greatness)

All are invited to the final public program designed to explore the themes in the traveling exhibition Manifold Greatness: The Creation and Afterlife of the King James Bible, on display at the William H. Hannon Library from January 24 through February 22, 2013. 

What was the impact of the KJV on the issue of Bible translation and use within the Roman Catholic tradition?

Are there any doctrinal issues in which the KJV played an important role in the divide between Protestants and Catholics?  

How did the KJV contribute to both dialogue and difficulties in the ongoing tensions between Protestants and Catholics over the last 400 years?

At this panel presentation, LMU Theological Studies faculty Thomas Rausch, S.J., Jeffrey Siker and Daniel Smith-Christopher will discuss these issues, and more.

Refreshments and snacks will be served. All Manifold Greatness events are free and open to the public. Please RSVP below.
