Nano Bible – a copy of the Hebrew Bible the size of a pinhead – has gone on display at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.

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.
