Fransisk Skorina Exhibit at the Regenstein Library

THE PRINTING PRESS COMES TO EASTERN EUROPE IN THE SLAVIC TONGUES

Come visit a new exhibit highlighting the work of Fransisk Skorina in the reading room on the 2nd floor of Regenstein Library.

Fransisk Skorina printed the first translation of the Bible into Belarusian in 1517. He worked in Prague where the Bible was printed. He then moved to Vilna and continued in printing activities for several more years. Skorina was celebrated on the 500th anniversary of his first publication in many conferences and books published last year.

On display are books about Skorina and his work, about other publishing efforts in the Slavic languages, and academic studies that have been done about early printing in the Slavic World.

It will remain on display until at least June 15.
