On View in the Gallery This Fall:
Celebrating a Year with the Saint John's Bible
Since September 2016 the Geisel Library at Saint Anselm College has publically displayed one of seven volumes of The Saint John's Bible Heritage Edition, a richly-illustrated fine press reproduction of a hand-illuminated Bible commissioned by the Benedictine Saint John's University and Abbey.
To mark the conclusion of the Bible's year-long stay at Saint Anselm, the Chapel Art Center will present a limited-run exhibition of select framed pages from additional volumes of the Heritage Edition, including the Pentateuch, the Prophets, and The Psalms.
Celebrating a Year with the Saint John's Bible will be on view from September 5-23, 2017.
