St. John's Bible - College of St. Scholastica

DULUTH, MN — The public is welcome when The College of St. Scholastica hosts Duluth Diocese Bishop Paul Sirba for a celebration of Mass at 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 18 in Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel on campus. The event is part of a yearlong celebration of the Saint John’s Bible, which St. Scholastica will host during the 2018-19 school year.

Commissioned by Saint John’s University and the monks of Saint John’s Abbey, the Saint John’s Bible was the first handwritten Bible published in 500 years. It features 160 illustrations by six artists, and 1,150 handwritten pages written by six calligraphers.

The creation of this Bible inspired the publication of the Heritage Edition, a full-size, museum quality reproduction of 299 seven-volume collections to be shared with the world. In the coming school year, in honor of St. Scholastica Monastery’s 125th anniversary, the College will host Volume 6 of the Heritage Edition, Gospels and Acts. This will provide the community with a unique opportunity to experience a rare work of art and inspiration. 

A variety of events and programming are being scheduled around the Heritage Edition’s presence, with integration into some of this year’s Spotlight arts and cultural events at St. Scholastica. The book will be available for viewing in the St. Scholastica Library and elsewhere. For details, visit css.edu/Bible.

The College of St. Scholastica is nationally recognized for quality. Rankings by U.S News & World Report classify it as one of the Midwest’s top regional universities. Learn more at css.edu.
