Best Answer

Bibles were copied by a variety of monastic organizations that were especially set up for the purpose, but there was no one group that did this. There was not even one Church that did it. The Book of Kells was a product of a Celtic Orthodox Church that was only loosely affiliated with the Roman Church, and there were other Churches, notably the Oriental Orthodox and Coptic Orthodox Churches, which did copied their own Bibles. After the Great Schism of 1054, the Eastern Orthodox Church maintained bible production in Greek and the Roman Catholic Church did it in Latin.
