INDIANA---Twenty-five fine arts prints from The Saint John's Bible are currently being exhibited at the Indiana Interchurch Center in Indianapolis. This is the first handwritten Bible commissioned since the advent of the printing press in the 15th century. The illuminated pages from this modern-day Bible will be on view through January 31, 2015, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. During the exhibit an in-depth visual meditation, Visio Divina, will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. A docent will lead participants in exploring the imagery of the illuminations, increasing one's awareness of the richness, complexity and symbolism of each extraordinary page and enhancing the overall experience of viewing the pages. For more information on the exhibit go to www.indianainterchurch.org.
