In 1998, St. John’s Abbey and University commissioned renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce a handwritten, hand-illuminated Bible. Join us on this day tour to St. John’s University, where you’ll see 28 original folios from the Bible, as well as tools, materials and sketches used in its creation. After lunch in the University Refectory Dining Hall, we’ll visit the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library, where Dr. Matthew Heintzelman will showcase a selection of the library’s fascinating and beautiful rare book and manuscript collection. We’ll leave the North Star Lofts upper parking lot (117 Portland Ave.) at 8:00 am via a rented van and return at approximately 4:30 pm. Cost for the tour is a suggested donation of $3 each (checks made payable to HMML); cost for lunch is $11.25. Cost for the van transportation will depend on the final number of registrants, but it could range from $35 - $65 per person.
