See The Bible

“One of the extraordinary undertakings of our time.”

Smithsonian Magazine

You are invited to experience The Saint John's Bible through the images and information on this web site, at one of the touring exhibitions, or at its home, the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library on the campus of Saint John's University.

The Saint John's Bible Gallery is located on the lower level of Alcuin Library on the Saint John’s University Campus. The gallery features 28 original folios showcasing works from all seven volumes of the Bible. Rare books and manuscripts from the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library collections complement the exhibition of the folios. Tools, materials and sketches used in the creation of The Saint John's Bible give a glimpse into the processes used to create this monumental work of faith and art. The gallery is open from Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Starting October 21 through December 16, 2017, the gallery will be open on Saturdays from noon-4:00 p.m. The gallery will be closed November 23, 24 and 25, 2017 for Thanksgiving, and there are no open hours on Sundays. There is no admission charge, and no reservations are needed for a self-guided tour. Guided tours for groups of ten or more are available by making a reservation in advance by contacting Tim Ternes at 320-363-3351 or tternes@csbsju.edu.
