Hello Fabrizio!

This sounds like a nice idea.
Some months ago, we had talked with a few other christian linux
fellows about creating a wiki Bible, that would be translated from the
Hebrew/Aramaic/Greek into lots of languages, as a collaborative work.
Maybe it can become a complement to your work :)
