Nano Bible: World’s Smallest Bible Goes on Dispaly at Israel Museum in Jerusalem
Nano Bible – a copy of the Hebrew Bible the size of a pinhead – has gone on display at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
The Nano Bible is the smallest version in the world.
It is a gold-coated silicon chip smaller than a pinhead, and contains all 1.2 million letters of the bible.
Engineers carved on the gold-plated silicon chip by using an ion beam.
The tiniest bible is being exhibited as part of events marking Israel Museum’s 50th anniversary.
The hi-tech creation is being housed in the museum’s Shrine of the Book, home to the Dead Sea Scrolls – the oldest copies of Biblical texts ever found.
