March 2017—Celebrating the Lenten Season: St. John’s Bible
To offer inspiration during the Lenten season, a small exhibit of our exquisite St. John’s Bible volumes and prints is on display on Raynor’s first floor.
The St. John’s Bible is the first handwritten, illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine Abbey since the advent of moveable type in the 15th century. It includes 160 illuminations, reflecting a contemporary approach to biblical interpretation and incorporating imagery from both Asian and European religious traditions. Our Department of Special Collections and University Archives holds a complete, seven-volume Heritage Edition of this Bible—one of only 299 deluxe fine-art reproductions of the original. Learn more about the St. John's Bible.
The exhibit, located adjacent to the main circulation area of Raynor's first floor, will run through April 17.
