Event Details

Join us every Monday at 2:00 to get a private look at the St. John’s Bible.

In 1998, Saint John’s Abbey and University commissioned renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce a hand-written, hand-illuminated Bible. The Saint John’s Bible is the first completely handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine abbey since the invention of the printing press.  Berea College is lucky to be home to one of only 299 complete sets produced.   We invite you to explore this work of art that unites an ancient Benedictine tradition with the technology and vision of today, illuminating the Word of God for a new millennium.

Please sign up HERE before 11:00 AM the day of the event so we know how many people to expect.

We hope to see you there!
