In 2010 Saint John’s University and Abbey honored Mount Saint Benedict Monastery with the gift of a Heritage edition of The Saint John’s Bible. Shortly before the beginning of the new millennium, Saint John’s had commissioned the calligrapher to the Queen of England, Donald Jackson, to create a hand-written and hand-illuminated bible. The Saint John’s Bible is the first hand-written bible commissioned by a Benedictine monastery in 500 years.
To schedule a viewing of the bible, please call 218-281-3441. If you wish to learn more about The Saint John’s Bible, please visit the bible site at Saint John’s Abbey, Collegeville, MN.
