St. John’s Bible Displayed at CHS

Four of the seven volumes of the St. Johní´s Bible were displayed in the CHS library on Monday, November 4.

The Saint Johní´s Bible is the first handwritten illuminated Bible to be commissioned by a Benedictine Abbey since the advent of the printing press. David Allaway, the edition director, came to CHS to make presentations to classes throughout the day.

Students, faculty and staff members stopped by the library throughout the day to see this incredible piece of religious history.
