Summary/Abstract: The author of this article presents issues connected with the collection, compilation of and use of sources for the history of the so-called Warsaw Bible, published for the first time by the British and Foreign Biblical Society in 1975. Up until now, nobody had attempted to compile the history of the translation of the Bible. Nobody had tried to collect and develop sources for its history, either. Th e author discusses, in turn, the issues connected with Warsaw Bible editions, archival documents concerning its history, interviews with living witnesses to the events, reviews and scientific publications referring to this very Bible. He then presents the methodology of work with these sources. The aim of this article is to kindle a flame of interest among theological circles in Poland in research on the history ofthe Warsaw Bible, which will celebrate its Golden Jubilee in 2025.
