Abstract

The Bible is a set of Holy Scriptures from Judaism and Christianity that have laid the foundations for these religions. It has likewise been a major cornerstone in the development of European culture based on the Judeo-Christian tradition. The older, Hebrew Bible was also incorporated into Christianity and, as the Old Testament, became a part of the Christian Bible. The history of the distribution and publication of Bibles is outlined in this paper. Slovakia’s oldest edition of the Christian Bible (and perhaps the oldest from the Bible anywhere) is thought to be an Old Slavonic translation from the 9th century. National bibliography programmes at the Slovak National Library have documented the existence of printings from the 15th century to the present day and also of Biblical literature. Apart from Slovakia itself, these editions come from several countries in Europe and even farther away. The history of the Hebrew Bible in Slovakia is somewhat less known and has so far been hardly explored. Two specialised collections of books that provide a rich source of printed editions of the Bible are the Judaica Collection at the University Library and the even more comprehensive library of the Museum of Jewish Culture, a branch of the Slovak National Museum. Both of these collections are located in Bratislava. Accordingly, it points to the need to develop research into the Hebrew Bible in Slovakia and also to research on Hebraica in general.
