The Saint John’s Bible is the first handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine monastery since the invention of the printing press in the 15th century. Students here at OLMC recently had the opportunity to view a volume of this beautiful Bible.
Now, for our adult community, Caldwell University will be hosting the Heritage Edition of the Gospels and Acts volume of the Bible, a work of art that unites the ancient Benedictine tradition with today’s technology and vision. Join us on Monday, January 27th at 7:30 PM in the Titus Room.
Heather Cook, Director of the Sister Vivien Jennings Library, will provide back-ground about the creation of this large bible intended for viewing by small groups, will show and discuss selected illuminations from the Gospel and Acts volume, and will solicit feedback from the audience after personal reflection. Coffee table books of all seven (7) volumes will also be available for viewing.
