And Then There Was Nano

The Smallest Bible in the World

  • Date iconApril 20 2015 - January 30 2018
  • Curators: Adolfo Roitman, Rotem Arieli
  • Nano chip

On the occasion of the Museum’s 50th anniversary, a new exhibition space in the Shrine of the Book is inaugurated with this display of a cutting-edge version of the Bible – a gilt nano chip the size of a sugar grain, on which the entire Bible is inscribed. Illustrating the power of nanotechnology, this high-tech miracle was created in the laboratories of Haifa’s Technion Institute by means of a technique recalling stone engraving. The text engraved on the chip needs to be magnified 10,000 times in order to be legible. The exhibition takes the Book of Books on a journey from antiquity to the present – from the 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls to the 21st-century Nano Bible.
