St Johns Bible

For my dissertation I am studying illuminated manuscripts and whilst researching them today I found St Johns Bible which is a modern day illuminated manuscript commissioned by Benedictine monks. It was finished in 2011 and it was the first illuminated manuscript to be commisioned by the Benedictine community in over 500 years. Its pretty amazing stuff…

There is a website where you can go through the whole Bible and learn about how it was made: http://www.saintjohnsbible.org/Explore.aspx?VID=1&ID=9

Id love to see it in real life but unfortunatly I can only find it touring in America.
