The Saint John's Bible Exhibition

The Saint John's Bible Heritage Edition, a full-size fine art edition of the original manuscript, will be on display in Gumberg Library's fourth floor Popular ReadingArea from Monday, Nov. 11, through Friday, Dec. 20.


The Saint John's Bible - a seven-volume handwritten, hand-illuminated, large-format manuscript, was commissioned by the Benedictine monks of Saint John's Abbey in Minnesota. Beginning in 1995, artistic director and renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson led a team of 23 artists, scribes and assistants who worked together for close to 15 years to complete the monumental manuscript. The original folios of The Saint John's Bible are on display at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library in Collegeville, Minn. 


Tim Ternes, Director of The Saint John’s Bible at the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library, will be on campus November 19th-21st for a series of lectures for students, faculty, staff, and the Pittsburgh community. Please visit duq.edu/TSJB for more information.

The Saint John's Bible Exhibition at Duquesne is co-sponsored by The Division of Mission & Identity and Gumberg Library. 


Gumberg Library is card-swipe access on the weekends and after 5pm Monday-Friday. Please push the buzzer to the right of the entrance for access to the building during these hours.


To schedule a group visit of over 10 people, please contact Dr. Sara Baron, barons1@duq.edu.
