A new exhibit, “Kings & Scribes: The Birth of a Nation,” opened in England in May at Winchester Cathedral (9 The Close, Winchester, Hampshire, UK; phone +44 1962 857200, www.winchester-cathedral.org.uk).

The exhibit is anchored by the Winchester Bible, which, at 2x113 feet, is the largest 12th-century illuminated English Bible in existence. Also on display are the painted caskets of Anglo-Saxon rulers buried at the medieval cathedral.

Daily hours vary with the season. The admission fee of £9.50 (near $12), adult, or £7.50, senior, includes a tour of the cathedral, treasury and crypt.
