Chameleon-at-End-of-Volume

A lecture by Fr. Eric Hollas OSB, a Benedictine monk and member of the Theology faculty at Saint John’s University in Collegeville, MN. Fr. Hollas was instrumental in initiating The Saint John’s Bible, a project in which the monks of Saint John’s commissioned Donald Jackson, scribe to the Queen of England, to create a hand-written and illuminated Bible.
