St. John's Bible in Richmond at Baptist Theological Seminary

The St. John’s Bible, the first Bible to be written and illuminated entirely by hand since the invention of moveable type more than 500 years ago is on display through June in Richmond at the Baptist Theological Seminary. Find out more at www.btsr.edu. The seven-volume Bible is the work of six calligraphers and six artists. Replicating the process used by monks in the Middle Ages to create illuminated Bibles, the calligraphers handwrote the pages using quills of large flight feathers from geese, turkeys, and swans. A rare 19th-century Chinese ink was used. The process was medieval but the illustrations are contemporary and multicultural.
