By the late 18th Century, Bibles had become treasured family heirlooms—not just for the spiritual aspect, but because the pages were used to record marriages, births and deaths. In recognition of the secular ways the Bible was used in the 19th and 20th centuries, Gardner-Webb University Archives and the Earl Scruggs Center of Cleveland County have created an exhibit: “Bound by Faith: The Bibles of Cleveland County.” The exhibit, sponsored by the O. Max Gardner Foundation, will be featured through March 31 in the Ali Pouryousefi Gallery at Tucker Student Center.
