Bishop Bedell’s Irish Translation of the Bible

The Watchtower Magazine for September 2015 contains an article on Bedell’s seventeenth-century Irish bible.

The article on the manuscript of Bishop William Bedell’s Irish translation of the Old Testament, which is held in Marsh’s, has generated much excitement among Jehovah’s Witnesses resident in Ireland, with many requests to see the precious manuscript itself.

We regret that the manuscript is not on exhibition, but members of the Church are welcome to organise groups (with a minimum of 15 people) for a tour of the Library and private viewing of the manuscript.

No charge applies for entry and the viewing, but donations are welcome.

If you would like to book a group viewing please contact Oisín Marsh at oisin.marsh@marshlibrary.ie.
