The Saint John's Bible

614-st-johns-bible

Something remarkable happened at Saint John's Abbey and University in Collegeville, MN in 1998.  The first handwritten, hand-illuminated Bible in 500 years was commissioned to be completed. A team of artists and scholars, brought together by renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson, combined the ancient techniques of calligraphy and illumination with an ecumenical Christian approach to the Bible rooted in Benedictine spirituality. The result is a living document and a monumental achievement that captures the beauty and tradition of centuries of liturgy that will carry it into the future.

Two presentations will be held at The Center At Donaldson, and sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
