The Saint John’s Bible: An Exhibition of Illuminations and Texts

When: Mondays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Continues through Jan. 30 2015

The Saint John’s Bible is the first handwritten and illuminated Bible since the advent of the printing press in the 15th century. Commissioned in 1995 and completed in 2011, the seven-volume set was produced by a team led by world-renowned calligrapher and illuminator Donald Jackson, senior scribe to Queen Elizabeth. The goal was to make the Bible accessible to all people, regardless of faith tradition. The exhibit will feature 25 mounted prints along with a bound copy of the complete Pentateuch. Opening reception from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on January 6. See website for companion events.
