DiMenna-Nyselius Library is the first college library in New England to have access to the St. John’s Bible. Furthermore, this Bible is unique because of its creation. Its authors combined methods used from the past and present, which range from handmade inks and gold leaf to 21st century technology and current themes and images.
One volume of the St. John’s Bible is on view on the main floor of the DiMenna-Nyselius Library (located under the stairs).
You can learn more about the Saint John’s Bible here. You can see an online exhibit from the Library of Congress with beautiful illustrations here.
You can hear a Don Jackson, calligrapher and director of the St. John’s Bible project being interviewed on the Today Show –
