Experience the Word come to Life in a new permanent gallery for The Saint John’s Bible

Guests are able to view 28 original folios from various volumes of The Saint John’s Bible with exhibition themes changing throughout the year. Manuscripts and rare books from HMML’s collections will also accompany each exhibition.

A full-sized, high-definition, digital version of the Bible will allow guests to electronically turn the pages of every volume of The Saint John’s Bible and explore details, videos and content behind each page.

The gallery can accommodate groups of up to 50 guests at a time, and the exhibition has been designed for self-guided tours. Docent-led tours and programs are available only by appointment. To arrange for a tour, please contact Tim Ternes at 320-363-3351 or [email protected]


The gallery is located on the Saint John’s University campus in the lower level of Alcuin Library. The gallery is free and open to the public. To visit the gallery, visitors enter through the main doors of Alcuin Library and descend to the entrance on the lower level. The gallery is open from Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Starting October 21 through December 16, 2017, the gallery will be open on Saturdays from noon-4:00 p.m. Hours between Christmas and New Years are still pending; check back for more details or call HMML at 320-363-3514.
