Printing the Bible |

TBC Staff

Immediately after the invention of printing, when every press in Europe was engaged printing the Bible, there was one solitary exception, the Pope’s press at Subiaco, near Rome. The first book ever printed in Italy was printed there in 1465, and from that time it poured forth a perfect stream of literature of all kinds; but never a book, never a chapter, never a verse of Scripture.
