Through a collaboration between Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Editon now has a home at Yale University. The 7-volume limited edition will be permanently housed at the Divinity School Library.

In his remarks at the May 2, 2012, reception, Fr. Michael Patella, OSB, chair of the Committee for Illumination and Text for The Saint John’s Bible, said, “There are few if any better places on earth for this kind of activity to take place than Yale. In the hands of this Divinity school and the Institute of Sacred Music, this Bible will be the ready source of inspiration that the Bible has been for many throughout history.”

"The mission of The Saint John's Bible is to ignite the spiritual imagination of people around the world," said Fr. Robert Koopmann, OSB, president of Saint John’s University. "We are delighted that generations of Yale students, faculty, staff and visitors will have access to these inspiring and historic volumes.”

“The Beinecke Library and the Institute of Sacred Music are pleased to help bring such an outstanding work to Yale,” commented E.C. Schroeder, Director of the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. “The acquisition of The Saint John’s Bible will provide an opportunity for scholars, faculty and students to compare this modern edition with the Beinecke’s Medieval manuscripts and early printed Bibles.”
