• Easter exhibit at Vatican features rare biblical manuscripts assembled by Baylor prof

    Dr. Scott CarrollThis Easter, a collection of rare biblical texts and artifacts assembled by a Baylor professor is on display in the heart of Vatican City.

    Verbum Domini,” a 5,000-square-foot exhibit, brings together more than 150 of the world’s rarest biblical texts and artifacts from The Green Collection and other private collections. The exhibit’s director is Dr. Scott Carroll (pictured), a research professor of manuscript studies and biblical tradition at the Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion. “Verbum Domini” runs through April 15 in St. Peter’s Square.

    If The Green Collection sounds familiar, it’s because a selection of items from the collection was on display at Baylor last spring, shortly after its debut at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, D.C., and before it began a tour that has included the Greens’ hometown of Oklahoma City and now the Vatican.

    Sic ’em, Dr. Carroll!
