Wednesday May 23, 2012 1:00 to 3:30pm
3rd floor – Post Learning Commons
Saint Joseph’s University
View several volumes of The Saint John’s Bible and the BBC documentary of the making of the Bible.
The Saint John’s Bible is the only handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine Monastery since the advent of the printing press more than 500 years ago. Commissioned by the monks of St. John’s Abbey in Minnesota, the Bible is a fusion of ancient artistic materials and techniques with modern technology envisioned by Donald Jackson, the official scribe and calligrapher for the British Crown.
This event will conclude with a tour of the newly-constructed Learning Commons and the refurbished Drexel Library.
