"Codex Pauli": Greatest tribute to St. Paul

2010-01-22

The 428 pages of Codex Pauli are considered to be one of a kind. A thick book, that pays tribute to the unforgettable Apostle to the Gentiles in light of the bi-millennium birth of St Paul.

Father Primo Gironi
Coordinator Codex Pauli

“We are accepting the Pope’s invitation to make St. Paul relevant. We decided to do it, not only by publishing two well known letters, but by publishing them the most beautiful way.”

The volume has a similar style to that of the ancient monastic ‘codexes’ or manuscripts. It’s enriched with a special selection of miniature adornments and illustrations. ‘Codex Pauli’ is inspired by the Carolingian Bible of the ninth century, a treasure that is kept in the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls in Rome.

Edmund Power
Abbot St. Paul Outside the Walls
“They had the idea of using the images of the Carolingian Bible to illustrate this great edition of St. Paul’s manuscripts, that includes letters and other writings from the first century that have to do with him. We are publishing the Word of the Lord a new way, by using images to tell the story.”

It’s a book of great spiritual and artistic value that is unmatched. Because aside from the Abbot at St. Paul Outside the Walls, other scholars who study St. Paul of Christian denominations around the world have also contributed.

Father Primo Gironi
Coordinator Codex Pauli
“We’ve consulted with other experts from other disciplines like History of Christianity and Art, because St. Paul has a lot to do with art and architecture, in fact he referred himself as his community’s architect.”

Archimandrita Mtanios Haddad
“We are all part of a family, a great family that can’t be divided, that can’t close itself off. Each one has to live the riches of Christianity. It’s like a mosaic, which we all take part in and that gives glory to God. We must be apostles of Christian ecumenism in the world.”

A codex about an apostle who once again has gained ecumenism. Anglicans, the Orthodox and Catholics have collaborated to render this one of a kind tribute to an apostle they share.

A mosaic made up of different pieces joined by a fearless apostle: St. Paul. A way mark this year a historic tribute to the birth of St. Paul.
