This inquiry leads students through an investigation of archaeology and how it contributes to our current understanding of the Bible. It is important to note that this inquiry requires prerequisite basic knowledge of world history, geography, and religion. Developing students’ background knowledge on these topics can be part of the inquiry or from previous learning.
This inquiry leads students through an investigation of how the Gutenberg Press allowed for the Bible to be spread geographically, linguistically, and socially (who in society could access the Bible). Students will learn what materials and utensils were used to write the Bible before the Gutenberg Press, how the Gutenberg Press allowed for greater access to the Bible, and where the Bible, as a result of Gutenberg’s invention, spread.
