The massive dome for St. Peter's Basilica weighs in at 14,000 tons or if you prefer 28,000,000 pounds. This is an impressive building.
Let's contrast it against the weight of a Bible. This is a highly variable number depending on the edition we choose.
I wasn't sure what version to use for the measurement so I decided to go to Amazon and I chose a bestselling version.
For the sake of this comparison, we'll use a hardcover King James version of the Bible - the large print edition. According to Amazon the shipping weight for this particular edition is 1.68 pounds.
This gives us an answer of 16,666,666.666 but we'll round that up to give us a slightly less devilish looking answer.
The dome of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome weighs 28,000,000 pounds which is the same weight as 16,666,667 Holy Bibles.
