His exhibit will be available for public viewing Sunday starting at 2 p.m. at Silver Creek Presbyterian Church, 6 Old Rockmart Road.
His exhibit consists of Bibles and books of Psalms he’s collected since 1970.
“The story of the first century of the English Bible has a fascinating history,” he said, “and it’s one that most people have never heard before.”
John Wycliffe translated the first copy of the Bible into English, and his translation remained the standard through the 16th century.
“This first translation remained with regents like Henry the Eighth, Bloody Mary, Elizabeth and James,” Morgan said.
The Bibles in the exhibit will be represented by original editions which demonstrate the early development of printing, Morgan said.
He considers the highlights of the exhibit an original New Testament translated by the martyr William Tyndale, a copy of the Great Bible of Henry the Eighth and a rare first printing of the King James Bible.
Janet Farr, an elder at the church, said she is excited about the exhibit.
“This is an opportunity of a lifetime, and it hasn’t been offered in Rome before,” Farr says. “Not only is viewing this original material certainly rare, but Morgan also put some of the Psalms to music, which is really neat. It will be especially interesting to people who teach or are interested in religious, historical texts.”
