From Inspiration to Illumination, an Introduction to The Saint John’s Bible

13/11/2023 at 14:00 15:00

In Tim Terne’s lecture guests will learn about the processes, tools, methods and materials behind the making of The Saint John’s Bible, as well as explore several artworks through guided imagery discussions. Participants also get to handle vellum samples and a quill and see large reproductions of The Saint John’s Bible after the presentation.

About the Speaker:

Tim Ternes is the Director of The Saint John’s Bible at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library at Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota. In his role as director, he worked closely with the artistic team during the creation of the Bible serving as facilitator between artist and commissioner. This collaboration has given him extensive behind-the-scenes knowledge and great stories about all aspects of The Saint John’s Bible project. He now serves as curator for the Bible Project and manages exhibitions, programming, and caring for the original pages of the manuscript. Tim travels thousands of miles a year offering presentations and educational programs for The Saint John’s Bible and has given over 8000 presentations on the project during his 19 years at Saint John’s University. In short, Tim is the keeper of the pages and the keeper of the story.

All are welcome, but those wishing to attend should book a free ticket via Eventbrite or email archives@churchofengland.org no later than Friday 10 November.
