The work of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History Paper Conservation Laboratory project to preserve the “Jefferson Bible” was shown. In his retirement years Thomas Jefferson compiled his own version of the four gospels, which he called The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth, by cutting and pasting passages from six bibles in four languages. The Smithsonian acquired the bible in 1895. Former President Jefferson’s creation of the bible and the conservation project were discussed. close
