The Saint John’s Bible
The L. Tom Perry Special Collections Library is anticipating the arrive of volume 7 of The Saint John’s Bible.
The Saint John’s Bible is the first entirely hand-written bible in 500 years. The library has acquired one of the few full-sized reproductions of this amazing set of books.
Recently Special Collections held an open house for library employees with the six volumes in our collection on display.
The open house was a great success. The scale of the books and the richness of the detail do not come across in photographs. The library staff enjoyed seeing the bible in person. In the future the library will install a display with an open volume so that everyone can have access to these great books.
