The Saint John’s Bible is the first handwritten and illuminated Bible to be commissioned by a Benedictine Abbey in the more than 500 years since the invention of the printing press. Pope Francis was present in September of 2015 when a special Apostles Edition of the Bible was gifted to the American people in a ceremony at the Library of Congress commemorating his historic visit to the United States.
Saint Joseph’s University is privileged to own a limited release seven volume fine art reproduction set of the Saint John’s Bible Heritage Edition.
Pope Benedict XVI said of the Saint John’s Bible “… this is a work for eternity”
