Following more than two centuries of official suppression of Christianity and the Bible in Japan, a team of Protestant missionaries and Japanese translators led by the American Presbyterian James Curtis Hepburn (1815–1911) produced the “Standard Version” of the Japanese Bible at Yokohama in 1887. The exhibited Bible is a revised 1906 edition of that version.
