Described as the first hyperlinked text, the Bible has long been considered a foundational artifact of Western thought and culture. Curated, analyzed, and translated for centuries, it has survived even its most ardent detractors. For its adherents and adversaries alike, the Bible is widely recognized for its literary authority and compelling narrative architecture.
