Treasure in a Bible: Folklore of Keepsakes


Abstract:
A wealth of folk material is stored in Bibles, not only family tree records that on occasion suffice for official documents, but also the treasured tidbits that one tucks inside a Bible because they had a special significance. From pressed flowers, bookmarks, and quilts patches, to pictures and locks of hair, Bibles present a treasure chest of folk wisdom.
