Mesa parishioners undertake "scriptorium" project

A group of women from St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Mesa, Arizona, have created their own medieval scriptorium. Under the leadership of SCA member Lee Kitts, the women have completed the Book of Genesis, with plans to finish the other 65 books of the Old and New Testaments. Maria Polletta of Azcentral.com has the story. (slideshow)

Last year Kitts proposed to Pastor Scott Jones that members of the church illuminate and calligraph a Bible in the manner of medieval monks. Now members meet once a week to work on the project.
