Spotlight on the Campus Tour of Saint John’s Bible Heritage Edition

The campus tour of The Saint Johns Bible Heritage Edition shines as a highlight of Fall 2023.  The Heritage Edition is a fine art replica of The Saint John’s Bible, which is a modernly created complete text of the Bible, handwritten and illuminated using medieval techniques and tools.

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the commissioning of the Saint John’s Bible, the Heritage Program of Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota embarked on a pilgrimage tour of prominent Anglican institutions in England, where the Bible was conceived and principally created.  This tour inspired our team to embark on our own tour, to share all seven volumes of Baylor’s set with the campus community.

Mayborn Museum

The tour included stops at the Baylor Sciences Building, the Foster Campus, the Mayborn Museum, the Tidwell Bible Building, the Simpson Athletics and Academic Center, and Truett Seminary,

    We are so pleased and honored to have Baylor as one of the permanent stewards of a Heritage Edition of The Saint John’s Bible. Approximately 170 of the 299 limited edition sets have been acquired to-date. Baylor is in wonderful company.
