St. John's Bible: Gospels and Acts

When Donald Jackson first approached Saint John's Abbey and University about his life-long dream, no one could have foreseen what would follow. The long-time scribe to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth's Crown Office would spend the next seven years collaborating with artist-calligraphers, illuminators, scholars, and the monks of Saint John's Abbey to create the first handwritten Bible since the invention of the printing press.

Using eggs, feathers, calfskins, and handground inks along with gold, silver and platinum, The Saint John's Bible employs ancient techniques to create a contemporary masterpiece intended to put us in communication with the Infinite.
Saint John's Abbey, a Benedictine monastic community in central Minnesota, and Saint John's University, a liberal arts college founded by the Abbey in 1857, envisioned a Bible that would ignite the spiritual imagination of people for centuries to come. It would be contemporary, interreligious, multicultural and prophetic. Created in Donald Jackson's scriptorium in Wales, The Saint John's Bible will reside at Saint John's University, which enjoys an international reputation for its work with medieval and early modern manuscripts.
Now, Donald Jackson and Saint John's Abbey and University introduce the first volume, Gospels and Acts, a beautiful book with 136 pages of sacred text and 25 exquisite illuminations that form a visual reflection on scripture.

The Bible will be published in seven volumes, plus a special edition on the making of The Saint John's Bible.
Be sure to look for each to be released!

This edition makes a great gift! Can be used as an heirloom or collector's item. Perfect for grandparents, godparents, parents, or anyone who may enjoy the fine art and beauty of these historical illuminated manuscripts!
