The Bible Museum of the Münster University, founded in 1979, is affiliated to the Institute for New Testament Textual Research. It reveals the history of the Bible from its handwritten beginnings to the modern day through roughly 1500 exhibits. This wide-ranging exhibition makes the museum unique and worth visiting: Precious manuscripts and prints of the Greek New Testament, elaborately designed polyglots (multilingual editions), the German Bible from Pre-Lutheran versions to Luther's translation, and 17th/18th century versions up to modern-day Bible translations, European and Non-European translations, and Bible illustrations.
