Our goal at 18thCenturyBibles.org is to preserve the historical accuracy of the great Christian literature of the 1700s and to present this literature to as many Living History enthusiasts as possible. We have been working toward this goal since October 2007.
The process of scanning and cleaning up the text of our original books takes months and months. Once each book is scanned, it then takes about one hundred hours to complete the numerous steps involved in creating and binding the thinner books and up to two hundred hours to complete our 1733 King James Bible. Over the last ten years, we have completed over 1500 books and thousands of pamphlets. We continue to purchase originals as they become available.

In 2010, we started a private Facebook group page for those who reenact as 18th century parsons, minister’s wives, chaplains, ministers, priests etc. This group is by invitation only. While the name of the members of this group are public, the contents of our posts remain private. We want this group to be an encouragement to fellow members as well as a source of information for those who want to develop or improve their own 18th century parson’s persona. We currently have hundreds members in this group. Our parson page is: www.facebook.com/groups/18thCenturyBibles
