Heartland Glass Provides Glass Used for Bible Vault

The Saint John’s Bible is all handwritten, the project was finished in 2011 and will now be in its permanent home at St. John’s University, Collegeville, MN. It features all 73 books of the Old and New Testament, including the deuterocanonical books or the apocrypha books. Tim Ternes, Director of the Saint John’s Bible for the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library at St. John’s University, says it’s not just about reading the bible though, it’s about seeing it come to life.

After over two decades of planning and work, the Saint John’s Bible is now on display at St. John’s University.

Those involved with the project celebrated the opening of the Saint John’s Bible Gallery with a ribbon-cutting Thursday, October 5th, 2017 and the gallery opened to the public on Friday.

Ternes designed the exhibition vault, which is a secured space that is climate controlled at 68 degrees with 45 percent humidity and dim lighting meant to preserve the pages. The glass for this special customized vault was provided by Heartland Glass, Waite Park, MN.  The 28 pages on display are presented in cases made of non-reflective glass; although unbound, the pages are wrapped around a mount to appear as they would in a book.

What: The Saint John’s Bible Gallery.

Where: Lower level of the Alcuin Library, St. John’s University. –

Hours: 10-a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Admission is free. For more information, visit www.saintjohnsbible.org. For information on tours, contact Tim Ternes at 363-3351 or at tternes@csbsju.edu.

Heartland Glass takes part in the SJU Alcuin Library Renovation

In all, the Roman Catholic university had three main goals with the $25 million project that added 22,000 square feet, according to President Michael Hemesath.

First, he said St. John’s wants students to study and mingle with others in Alcuin, much like the situation in the late 1970s and early ’80s, when Hemesath attended the school. It also wants to expose students to emerging technologies, along with professionals who can help enable their use. And finally, the university wants the library’s physical spaces to reflect and accommodate changing teaching and learning styles that encourage more collaboration than ever.

Heartland Glass is proud to have been a part of this project by providing the glass for the newly renovated library.
