We suggest your opening two or three of these simultaneously for an intriguing effect, mixing together speech and music, like a medieval motet, that you create. Re-call this page in your browser, while reducing each .mp3 file, these continuing to play polyphonally as background to the visual text. At first books were written out by hand, in manuscript, often gold-leafed as well as rainbow-coloured, and were read aloud and chanted from. Then they became black and white printed books, read silently in intellectual loneliness. Now they can be the sensuous luminous and harmonious pages, with colour again, and with song, with voice, through the new/old technologies of alphabet and number, the zeros and ones, of our computers, of our information society. With the new technology we return writing to the recording of human speech that it really is, an earlier technology, from merely the letters and the silent eye to the sounding voice and the ear as well. With thanks to Godfriends Julie and Ilya in Oxford and to my cousin Robin in Canada.

For the Mediatheca 'Fioretta Mazzei' library holdings on Julian of Norwich and other contemplatives, see http://www.florin.ms/libgimel.html. The library is housed in Florence at the 'English' Cemetery, P.le Donatello, 38, 50132 FIRENZE, ITALY, and one may become a member and reader through the gift to it of a book a year.


{In the early Middle Ages, the first two thirds of Christianity, in monasteries and convents, women could be equally learned as were men. These were Schools for Prayer, living the Word of God, the Gospel, the Bible. In the Twelfth Century, in Paris, the pagan Greco-Arabic model of the university was subverted and adopted by the Church. From its lecture halls, where theology now came to be taught to authorized specialists, women were rigorously excluded, only finding their way back partially into the world of learning in our past century. Likewise with this learning, minds became abstracted and divorced from soul and from body, from the family, from women and children, concentrating upon the intellect only, out of harmony and balance to flesh and blood reality, to Creation. In this website, crafted by both men and women, and also by their children, shall be presented a wealth of learning for men and women and children, culled through time from spiritual, rather than temporal, sources, from collaborative, not competitive, communities. Imagine this composite website as your monastic library, your scriptorium, within your anchorhold, to read in prayerful contemplation. Wisdom, God's Daughter, says:

And of her it is said: William Langland, Julian's contemporary, remembers his schooling at Benedictine Malvern Priory: That was likely Julian's schooling at Benedictine Carrow Priory in Norwich, continued throughout her life. In these interrelated websites we share with you her monastic library and her contexts, then and now.

The Umilta Website, about the love of God and neighbour, is constructed as a colour-coded memory system as were medieval manuscripts, Anglo-Saxon materials in alternating reds and greens, later medieval materials in alternating reds and blues, in the latter case like pulsating umbilical cords, of the Word become flesh dwelling in our midst, oliveleaf trauma healing material being in blues and greens. Brown ink signifies a quotation from a manuscript, other text in grey signifying modern commentary. A hierarchy of scripts is used with large capitals for websites, smaller capitals for their subsets, in the titles to essays. Rather than modern technology, with counters, java, flags, we shall use an ancient simplicity in words and images, from the Age of Faith. As did Julian herself. Had she lived in our centuries, Julian would have used the Internet so. This Website, like Julian's Benedictinism, is intentionally a school of learning, a school for contemplation; yet, like Julian of Norwich's Showing of Love, it is for everyone, wherever you may be in the world, poor or rich, crippled or whole, lay or cleric, children, women, men. As Ritamary Bradley wrote in Julian's Way: A Practical Commentary on Julian of Norwich (London: Harper Collins, 1992), we are about not only the theory, but also the practice, of Julian of Norwich's Showing of Love, in all its kaleidoscopic aspects, like dew upon cobwebs sparkling amidst mist, like the Gothic traceries of Julian's Cathedral of the Holy and Undivided Trinity of Norwich.
 

Norwich Cathedral

Copying Julian, this webmistress lives as a hermit in a graveyard, though in Florence rather than Norwich. Why our English has to spill over into Italian, and even Spanish and Portuguese. We are global. We are ecumenical. We are like Teresa of Avila's Interior Castle. About spiritual riches, not ephemeral money. We encourage the parallel use of languages other than English. We encourage the learning of skills and handcrafts. We are a library about a library. We encourage you in the writing of books, of web essays, that restore meaning. The Web, like Wisdom, God's Daughter, can reach from one end of the globe to the other, sweetly ordering all things, but not in temporal or spatial linearity, instead, with hypertexting, with elaborate weaving and embroidering, with the tracery of cobwebs with dew on them, reflected in Gothic windows, arabesqueing back upon itself through time and space. In this we mirror the synapses of the human brain/mind, powered by our hearts/ lungs, charged by our souls in God's image. We seek your creative contributions.

  Sister Anna Maria Reynolds C.P. is the greatest editor Julian ever had. During the war years she was transcribing the extant microfilms with a microscope, a word at a time, for her Leeds University MA and Ph.D. theses. Subsequent editions are based on her meticulous work. Now in her nineties, blind, frail, she has created a fine CD in which she discusses Julian with total recall of the text. It can be obtained for 12 euro from her at Cross and Passion Convent, 22 Griffith Avenue, Marino, Dublin 9, EIRE.

AUDIO-BOOKS AS DVDS AND PODCASTS OUR VIRTUAL LIBRARY INTENDS TO PUBLISH:
We are embarking on creating DVDs and podcasts of Audio-Book readings. This partly because my colleague and co-editor, Sister Anna Maria Reynolds, C.P., in Ireland is now blind and we sought to record the Julian text for her. We have acquired a Mac mini with ILife and a fifth generation IPod video for this work. But I am not a teenager used to ITunes and, in my seventieth year, need help from you. Please give us advice. I have already recorded Julian of Norwich, the Westminster Showing of Love, and also John Woolman's Plea for the Poor and Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Ballad and Sonnets, including her anti-slavery poems, for this Bicentennial of the Abolition of the Slave Trade. We plan on creating audio-books such as the following as well:

Brunetto Latino, Il Tesoretto
Aucassin e Nicolete
The Book of Job
Boethius, Consolation of Philosophy
Dante Alighieri, Vita Nuova
Julian of Norwich, Westminster Showing of Love, Julian1.mp3, Julian2.mp3, Julian3.mp3, Julian4.mp3

AUREO ANELLO'S VIRTUAL UNIVERSITY: Apple has now begun ITunesU, with Stanford and Berkeley, my alma mater, offering free courses as podcasts. It will be possible for us to offer courses in a similar way.

Suggested Seminar Topics:

                                 Julian of Norwich;
                                 Birgitta of Sweden;
                                 Friends of God;
                                 Florence's Saints;

I envision these courses as a mixture of oral lectures with visual materials as well as references to existing webessays on these websites (umilta, florin). Let us know to which courses you would wish to subscribe. We can then arrange to do them with IPod recordings turned into MP3s alongside PowerPoint slides, both downloaded from the Web and played simultaneously. Or better yet as conference calls with Skype, downloading Skype being free, and also using it between two or more participating computers, even across the Atlantic, this being likewise free and therefore more spontaneous. My Skype identity is Julia Bolton Holloway, Florence. Especially valued will be contributions from others. Contact Julia Bolton Holloway to register for an independent scholar initiated seminar, setting up topics and times.
