The Jefferson Bible, Smithsonian Edition: The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth
by Thomas Jefferson

The Jefferson Bible is an exquisite full-color reproduction of his famous, much-edited version of Jesus’ life and teachings, cut and pasted from eight Bibles—two each in English, French, Latin and Greek. Includes his hand-written margin notes, chapters on his Enlightenment views, and a review of the painstaking process to preserve the original.

An introduction by Smithsonian curators Harry R. Rubenstein and Barbara Clark Smith explains Jefferson’s intentions in creating the volume and the ways that his endeavor reflected his Enlightenment ideals and Revolutionary spirit. Smithsonian conservator Janice Stagnitto Ellis’s essay on conservation reveals surprising insights into how Jefferson crafted the book so precisely. Faithful to the unique artifact so painstakingly created by Thomas Jefferson himself, The Jefferson Bible, Smithsonian Edition makes the thoughts of a great American mind accessible for generations to come.
