Green Scholars Initiative

The Green Scholars Initiative is the research arm of The Green Collection which is among the world’s largest private biblical collections. Directed by Dr. Jerry Pattengale, the unique research initiative breaks the mold of traditional research paradigms by pairing young students with established scholars to pioneer groundbreaking research on the collection’s biblical texts and artifacts. Scholars from more than 60 colleges, universities and seminaries around the globe are involved with research projects through the initiative. Read more about the initiative.

The Green Collection

Named for the family who founded U.S. arts and crafts retailer Hobby Lobby, The Green Collection is among the world's largest private collection of rare biblical texts and artifacts. Scholars have scoured the world to assemble the more than 40,000 biblical antiquities that today comprise the collection. Since its debut in 2011, The Green Collection "has created a buzz" (Fox News) and has been called "a sampler of Jewish, Roman Catholic and Protestant treasures" that span from ancient times to the digital age (USA Today). Hobby Lobby President Steve Green oversees the expansion and outreach of the collection and will serve as chairman of the board for a D.C.-based national museum that will be the collection’s permanent home.
