Default Illuminating the Word

On Tuesday, in the Floridean section, our local St Petersburg Times had an unusual article on the exhibition at the Naples FL Art Museum of pages from the new St John's Bible being produced by the Benedictine Monks at St John's Abbey in Minnesota.



Here's the link to the article:

and to a fascinating video of Donald Jackson talking about the illumination and calligraphy.

<< [Jackson was] appointed a scribe to the Crown Office at the House of Lords. In other words, he became "The Queen's Scribe."

Since then, in conjunction with a wide range of other calligraphic projects, he has continued to execute Historic Royal documents including Letters Patent under The Great Seal and Royal Charters. He was decorated by the Queen with the Medal of The Royal Victorian Order (MVO) which is awarded for personal services to the Sovereign in 1985. >>

Here's a link to the Benedictine's own website:

The page there on the "Welsh Team" is fascinating -- they are all so young!

Enjoy!
