Work on the first handwritten Bible that any Benedictine monastery has commissioned in 500 years is nearing completion

In the United Kingdom a team of calligraphers and artists has been copying the Bible by hand and illustrating it.
They expect to complete their work by the end of 2009.
In 1998 the Benedictine monks of St. John's Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota, U.S.A., commissioned the project.

The project has a website.

The artwork leaves me cold.

It really, well, is fairly impenetrable to one such as I.
