Illustrated Saint John's Bible facsimile on display at BYU during Oct. 18 open house

All seven volumes of the Heritage Edition of The Saint John’s Bible will be available for public viewing during an open house at Brigham Young University’s Harold B. Lee Library Friday, Oct. 18, from 6 until 9 p.m. at the L. Tom Perry Special Collections.

The open house will be held in room 1130 on level one of the Lee Library. Admission is free and the public is welcome to attend. 

The Saint John’s Bible is the product of a project initiated in 1998 at the Saint John’s Abbey and University in Collegeville, Minnesota. Donald Jackson, senior calligrapher to Queen Elizabeth, and a staff of scribes and artists created a hand-written, hand-illuminated bible — the first hand-written bible in roughly 500 years.

Through the generosity of a number of donors, the L. Tom Perry Special Collections acquired a facsimile of this stunning work and will be displaying all seven volumes.
