The St. John's Bible took 155 monks, a scribe for the British House of Lords, 23 artists, 16 years and a lot of swan feathers, calf skin and gold leaf to complete. Measuring 2 feet tall by 3 feet wide when open, the 7 volume work - commissioned by St. John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota - is the first hand-written, illuminated Bible commissioned anywhere in the world in 500 years. 68 pages of the St. John's Bible are on exhibit at the Canton Museum of Art. M.L. Schultze of Ohio Public Radio Station WKSU has the story.
