In purples, greens and gold, the illuminations in Historical Books explore the relationship of God’s people to God’s promise. Marginal text treatments trace the Israelites’ rise and fall as they move through the era of judges and kings, with prophets guiding the way.
In 2016, Set 111 of The Saint John’s Bible Heritage Edition (SJB) became a permanent addition to Berea College’s extensive collection of Bibles and religious texts housed in Hutchins Library Special Collections & Archives.
