In 1998, the monks of Saint John’s Abbey in Minnesota commissioned renowned calligrapher Donald Jackson to produce the first hand-written and illuminated Bible in 500 years. Following production, the University of Portland received a Heritage Edition as a generous gift from Allen and Kathleen Lund. The Saint John’s Bible is on permanent display in the Clark Library.
