Past Exhibit: The Saint John's Bible Print Exhibition
St. John's Bible: Exhibit includes replica leaflets from the Saint John's Bible written and drawn entirely by hand by a team of professional scribes and artists over the course of 15 years. The purpose of the St. John's Bible is to bring the Word of God to today's population in a way they've never seen it before. Reproductions of the Bible can be viewed at more than 40 establishments throughout the world. The piece is the only "handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine Monastery since the advent of the printing press more than 500 years ago," according to the press release about the St. John's Bible.
