Villa St. Benedict, in Lisle, to Host Special Rare Viewing of the Saint John’s Bible from Nov. 1-11

You are invited to experience the Heritage Edition of the highly acclaimed Saint John’s Bible from Nov. 1-11 at Villa St. Benedict in Lisle. This is an opportunity to experience a special  viewing of a rare Bible up close and personal.

The Saint John’s Bible is the first handwritten and illuminated Bible commissioned by a Benedictine monastery since the advent of the printing press more than 500 years ago.  The one-of-a-kind Heritage Edition of the Saint John’s Bible is a full-size fine art edition of the original manuscript created under the direction of Donald Jackson, the artistic director of the original manuscript.  Each volume received finishing treatments by hand, and only 299 sets of the Heritage Edition were created.
