Suzanne Moore: Painter of the Saint John’s Bible

Presented by the Fine Arts Department of Loyola University Maryland, students enjoyed a lecture at Loyola-Notre Dame Library by Saint John’s Bible artist, Suzanne Moore.  Moore talked about the paintstaking twelve-year creation process of the Saint John’s Bible; the first illuminated, handwritten Bible commissioned by a Benedictine Monastery in 500 years.  The artists focused on interpreting thirteen illuminations and special treatments that she created for the bible.   Following the lecture, students were able to view the limited edition, Heritage Edition of the Saint John’s Bible which is part of the Libary’s Special Collection. The bible was made possible by the generosity of the Family of Nicholas B. Mangione and the late Julie Kline Rybczynski.
