In 1160, almost 100 years after the Norman invasion, Henry of Blois, the grandson of William the Conqueror, commissioned a Bible that later became known as the Winchester Bible. It is considered one of the finest Bibles ever produced, filled with beautiful and intricate artwork. It points back to a time when the Word of God had a place of central importance to Winchester, the people who lived there and the kings who ruled from there.
