In 1998, Saint John's Abbey and University commissioned renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce a hand-written, hand-illuminated Bible. In 2011 San Diego School of Christian Studies and First Church exhibited 25 prints from The Saint John's Bible. We again invite you to explore 25 new prints from 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.
Docents from First Church will be your hosts as you enjoy the prints from The Saint John's Bible at your leisure. An introductory video, chronicling the origins of the project, and the struggles of the commissioned calligrapher, Donald Jackson, to complete it, will show every hour.
