The Bible in Its Traditions

Dear Friends,

From Jerusalem, happy Feast of the Annunciation! It is with great joy that we announce the launch of the BibleArt application, a new annotated translation of the Bible.

Why BibleArt?

BibleArt emanates from the great biblical, cultural and interdisciplinary platform of The Bible in its Traditions, which for several years now has been connecting researchers and artists with the general public, to give them access to the latest range of academic research or cultural creations inspired by the Bible.

It also provides useful material for scholars who need to address biblical cultures.

The result of the School’s reflection, BibleArt offers:

  • Free content accessible to all thanks to its digital format.
  • A new translation of the Bible into modern French, arranged entirely in “verse” as St. Jerome intended.
  • The implementation of a new art of translation that preserves the strangeness of the biblical text.
  • It is enriched with thousands of multimedia content across multiple disciplines, offering a diverse and immersive experience.

The easy-to-use app is also interactive: each user is encouraged to suggest improvements, thus contributing to the reliability and cultural richness of this annotated bible.

A huge thank you in advance for your help,
