On June 18, 2011, this illumination was presented to the community of Saint John’s Abbey and University in the great Abbey Church on the Collegeville, Minnesota, campus. The folio was placed on the Abbey Church altar and burnished with two gold Benedictine crosses marking this last addition to The Saint John’s Bible with a symbol of its new home. This brought the fifteen-year creation phase to a celebratory close. View this work and others at OKCMOA in "Sacred Words: The Saint John’s Bible and the Art of Illumination" now through Jan. 8! #SaintJohnsSundays
