The Holy Spirit: Art and Theology Speaking to Today's World
featuring The Rev. George Montague, S.M., S.Th.D.

Long before the first Bible illuminator, the divine Artist crafted images for the Holy Spirit. Now, The Saint John's Bible represents the combined efforts of contemporary artists working with theologians and biblical scholars to offer interesting, new perspectives on ancient texts.

Wednesday, Oct. 10
7 p.m., Holy Rosary Church, 159 Camino Santa Maria, San Antonio, TX 78228

Author of over 20 books on both the scholarly and popular level, Father Montague has specialized in the Pneumatology of both Old and New Testaments, having written or contributed to a number of studies in that discipline. He has also researched and written in the field of Biblical Interpretation (Hermeneutics), and in the Marian theology in the Gospel of John.  

Lectures are free and open to the public. Those traveling to campus are asked to park in Lot D near the NW 36th St. entrance, or in Lot H, near the Culebra Rd. entrance.

For more information, contact Robert O'Connor, Ph.D., at roconnor@stmarytx.edu or 210-436-3799 or 210-436-3213.

The Escobedo Saint John's Bible Lecture Series is made possible by the generous gift of Ruben (B.B.A. '60) and Veronica Escobedo. 

The Saint John’s Bible, the world’s newest handwritten, hand-illuminated bible, and is the first such bible to be commissioned by a Benedictine Abbey since the advent of the printing press more than 550 years ago. The Heritage Edition, acquired by St. Mary's University, is a numbered, full-scale fine art reproduction of the original.

Programs linked to The Saint John's Bible Heritage Edition have a central theme of "Let There Be Light" because we believe the Bible leads to enlightenment and strengthens faith for all who witness it.
