The Art of The Saint John's Bible

Susan Sink, College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University


Now that the seven volumes of The Saint John's Bible (SJB) are complete, what can we say about the art contained within them? Susan Sink has written three volumes of "The Art of The Saint John's Bible" for Liturgical Press and is currently working on combining them into a single book that considers the works in order from Genesis through Revelation.

This presentation looks at how the SJB uses illumination and text treatments to promote particular themes and address some key objectives of the overall project.
