Today, the first Bible printed by Francisk Skorina will be delivered in Minsk

04.09.2017
Today, the first Bible printed by Francisk Skorina will be delivered in Minsk. Since the mid-19 century, it has been stored in the Historical Museum in Moscow. Also, this copy of the Bible is unique in that it contains an engraving depicting Francisk Skorina himself. He was the only author who placed his portrait in the Holy Scripture. Francisk Skorina’s Bible will be delivered to the National Airport of Minsk. To keep the 500-year-old unique edition safe, it will be transported in a special fire-safe suitcase. The Bible will be exhibited at the National History Museum of Belarus until December.
