Langsdale Library has exhibited Saint John's Bible

Langsdale Library has a facsimile of the Saint John's Bible that is on exhibit at the Walters Art Museum. This contemporary hand lettered, illuminated Bible is available at Langsdale’s Reserve Desk on the first floor. This stunning work was created under the direction of Donald Jackson for St. Johns University in Collegeville, Minnesota. Langsdale has two volumes: Pentateuch and Wisdom Books.

The original manuscript is currently on display at the Walters until May 25th. For further information on the Walters’ exhibit and the Saint John’s Bible, see their website: http://www.thewalters.org.
