“Verbum Domini II: God’s Word Goes out to the Nations” closing event

The Bible exhibit “Verbum Domini II: God’s Word Goes out to the Nations”, presented at the Vatican on April 1st through June 30th, reflected the Bible’s global appeal and impact through many centuries.  The many historical artifacts presented how the Bible spread from Palestine to North East Africa, to the medieval West, to Central and Eastern Europe, to the British Isles, to China, to early America and even to the moon.

The following photos are related to the closing ceremony held in Rome at Pius X Hall.
