John Eliot

Want to know more about John Eliot and the influence of the first bible printed in any language in America? The Museum’s copy of the second edition (1685) of the Eliot Bible is on display in the Research Library, Wed.-Sat., 1-5 pm, through April 26, 2014. In addition to the Bible, we have a small display of works about John Eliot, including a handful of theses devoted to him, and we have many microfilms of historical documents including: A brief narrative of the progress of the gospel amongst the Indians in New-England, in the year 1670, written by John Eliot. London: Printed for J. Allen, 1671.
