In October 2012, the University of Wyoming Libraries, American Heritage Center and Religious Studies Program and the Albany County Public Library offered a series of free lectures, in conjunction with the traveling exhibition Manifold greatness: the creation and afterlife of the King James Bible. The exhibition was organized by the Folger Shakespeare Library and the American Library Association Public Programs Office. It is based on an exhibition of the same name developed by the Folger Shakespeare Library and the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford, with assistance from the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas, to mark the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible. The traveling exhibition was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. With funding from the Wyoming Humanities Council, the UW Libraries recorded a selection of the events.
