It is a Bible that once belonged to President Abraham Lincoln, again, 150 years after his death, and, pointing to the belief that he’s clung to it as a pivotal moment in American history, and, as he became more and more overtly religious.

Lincoln’s faith has long been debated over the last few years. He came to be known as the “village atheist” as a young man, but he would be one of the most explicitly religious speeches ever made by a president in his second inaugural address. Scientists say the new discovery will help in the consistency of his faith in his later years.

President Abraham Lincoln’s 150 year-old Bible was gifted to his neighbor, Rev. Noyes W. Miner, by his widowed wife, Mary. Miner’s family and was passed down to and just recently gave birth, so that the public can view it.

He was gifted with an 18-pound, gilted Bible, emblazoned with the words “faith,” “hope” and “charity” due to the hospital and treated wounded and sick soldiers during the civil war.

A few months later, after receiving a copy of the Bible, as a gift, and, as Lincoln said, “with regard to this Great Book, and I have to say, it is the greatest gift that God has given to man. All the good Savior gave to the world was communicated through this book. However, we do not know what is right and wrong. Of all the things that are most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter, are found portrayed in it.”
