A Digital Scroll: Why?

by Bible.In.Its.Traditions

Altering the 'Default Setting' of Printed Bibles...

We offer to the general public access to a new way of editing and translating the Bible:

the scroll of the 'BIBLE IN ITS TRADITIONS' (in French, with insights in English and Spanish).

This free new edition is the basis of an ongoing work of numerous teams which prepare a full-fledged annotation, applying the analytical framework of The Bible in Its Traditions Research Project : clear notes from contemporary biblical scholarship, analytically arranged in

TEXT,
CONTEXT
& RECEPTION.

READ

From Genesis to Revelation, scroll through Scripture right and left — horizontally — just as in an antique biblical manuscript.

Discover the many voices of Scripture as in a musical score:

  • Hebrew (“massoretic”) : M
  • Greek: G
  • Latin (“Vulgate”) : V
  • Syriac: S

By the end of 2016, The French version of La Bible en ses traditions allows you to experience at least two voices: the original Hebrew (M) or Greek (G) versions and the Latin (V) translation.
As we progress and the work of our translators proceeds, access to the other major versions will be opened...
