The Blank Bible

"“The Blank Bible” as it became known, is anything but blank!

The Blank Bible was Jonathan Edwards’ own 18th-century version of a study Bible. He took his Bible, unbound it, and put a blank piece of paper between each of the pages for his notes, then had it all rebound into one new book!

Ingenious at a time when study Bibles with wide margins for notes were unheard of.

Jonathan Edwards, a New England Puritan, is credited by some as one of our greatest American scholars—his Blank Bible a treasure for scholars and students today. It’s on display in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University!
