Go Thou And See A True Piece of Art: The St. John's Illuminated Bible

Genesis 1
The Minnesota Marine Art Museum (in town) is hosting an exhibit of the St. John's Bible through October 20th.  If you have not seen this, the Bible is absolutely worth the visit.  It is the first illuminated Bible done in centuries, recovering the monastic tradition of the ancient and medieval Church.

Students (with an I.D.) can gain admission in the museum for free on Tuesdays.  Otherwise, admission is $3.  While you are there, you can see a National Geographic exhibit on "Sacred Waters"--photography on the role of water in various world religions.  It is a wonderful exhibit.

(Check out the Monet and Picasso while you are there!)

More here and in the Theology Suite.
