D.C.’s Freer Gallery displays two ancient Bibles over the holidays

The Freer Gallery of Art is showing off two rare Bibles from its archives through Feb. 16, 2014. The Bibles, written in Greek and bought by art collector Charles L. Freer in the early 1900s, date from the 3rd and 4th centuries. They are seldom on display because of their fragility and sensitivity to light.
