MILTA'S TWELVE WEBSITES: TABLE OF CONTENTS  


milta's twelve interwoven Websites, of which this is the Site Map, are: I. Julian of Norwich, Her Showing of Love and its Contexts, Website; II. St Birgitta of Sweden, Her Revelationes, Website; III. Equally in God's Image: Women in the Middle Ages Website; IV. Mirror of Saints Website; V. Miriam and Aaron: The Bible and Women Website; VI. Our Anchorhold Website; VII. Its Scriptorium, The Computer of Wisdom Website; VIII. Latin with Laughter: Terence through Time Website; IX. The Amherst Manuscript Website;  X. Its Library (Bibliography on Julian); XI. Heavenwindow: A Web of Prayer; XII. The Oliveleaf Website; and the Godfriends' Discussion List, bringing you a heritage, a word hoard, Julian's Web, created with light, from their past, through our present, for your future. We place these categories in a band at the tops and bottoms of all our pages. Further portals are being created, one on St Catherine of Siena, Julian's contemporary, another on Giorgio La Pira and Fioretta Mazzei, two modern candidates for sainthood, who shaped Florence as a Jerusalem.

There used to be an alphabetical index of proper names, but with Google in place this is no longer needed. The very alphabet we write on the Web is sacred, made of light, praising God, and as playful as is God's Daughter, Wisdom .

Miriam and Aaron: The Bible and Women An E-Book. General

Welcome to the Peoples of the Book 

his Website and E-Book is in Progress. It once was to be a book about the Book. The first part, on women in the Hebrew Scriptures, would also teach the Hebrew alphabet. The second, on women in the Greek Testament, would similarly teach the Greek alphabet (pirated from the Hebrew!). Then it would have concentrated on such women as Helena , mother of Constantine, studying the Bible and the Holy Land's archeology, on Egeria travelling Bible in hand and writing home to her nuns in Spain about her observations, on Paula and Eustochium going from Rome to Bethlehem, studying Hebrew, already having Greek and Latin, and funding and helping Jerome translate the Bible from Greek and Hebrew into the Vulgate Latin that then also women and children could understand. It would have discussed Boniface's circle of English nuns on mission in Germany creating Bibles on purple vellum with golden letters. It would have discussed Julian 's and Birgitta 's close knowledge of the Bible, both likely having advisers who knew Hebrew, Adam Easton who taught it at Oxford, Magister Mathias who studied it in Paris. It would have continued through such women as George Eliot, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Simone Weil and Edith Stein, noting, too, St Therese of Lisieux's desire that priests study the Bible in the sacred and original tongues.

In Florence, in Tuscany, we are surrounded with treasures created by women responding in lectio divina to the Bible, in Arezzo, Egeria 's unique manuscript, perhaps prompting Piero della Francesca's cycle of paintings of Helena's Finding of the True Cross; in Lucca, Hildegard of Bingen's superb and final manuscript; in Florence, Marguerite Porete's Mirror of Simple Souls, translated into Italian, a book for which she was condemned to be burned in Paris by 21 Doctors of Theology, 1310, but which continued to be copied and translated as a samizdat sacred book, creating the Friends of God of Meister Eckhart, John Tauler, Henry Suso, Jan Van Ruusbroec; in Siena, St Catherine of Siena's disciple, Cristofano Di Gano, having translated into Italian, St Birgitta of Sweden's Revelationes. And this is the city in which Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote Aurora Leigh, resonating with the Bible, concluding with the Apocalypse.

nter Your Global Hermitage ~ ~ ~

 ollowing the medieval contemplative Friends of God , we essay to build a Utopian monastery, that never was, is or will be, yet always is. Our base is one book-lined room above Florence, without heat, on foot, but with a computer and prayer, a global hermitage. In this Website, still in progress, we present Father Founders, Mother Foundresses, through time; present their Opus Dei, the work of prayer and praise to God, their 'School of Prayer'; give their Rules, their Red/Blue Prints; then links to monastic orders and monastic writings, as foundation stones for our own global communing. We also open our cloister, our hermitage, and its learning to you.

The Computer of Wisdom, A Website on Textual Communities General/Contemplative/Scholar


Welcome to its Scriptorium ~ ~ ~

his Website seeks to unlock the wisdom of books, written by women as well as men, about the textual, as well as monastic, communities created throughout time by men and women in shared collaboration with each other, based on the Bible, about how to read a manuscript with paleography and codicology, and about how to use the great European libraries, questing in them the contemplative treasures of the past for the future, seeing computers as but a stage in technology that began with the invention of the alphabet in creating textual communities. You can covenant to participate in tutorials, for instance on Dante's Florence, on Julian's Norwich, on Paleography and Editing of Manuscripts, you can attend our international congresses in Florence on The City and the Book, La Citta` e il Libro, held 2001, 2002, 2003, and perhaps 2007/8, these conducted not as in a competitive university, but as in a contemplative monastery, open to lay and clergy, women and men, old and young, poor and rich. Indicate what you would like to learn. A lending library by post can be made available for you. We borrow our title from Henry Suso's Horologium Sapientiae. We borrow, too, the memorable beauty and technology of medieval manuscripts for the colour and form of our web pages, their 'hierarchy of scripts', and their alternating reds and blues, the pulsating colours of an umbilical cord, linking us backwards through time to Creation by God, books being likewise living and filled with the Spirit, though these colours were lost with the black and white of the mechanical printing press.

. The Oliveleaf Website General

Welcome to the Olive Grove ~ ~

his Oliveleaf Website is concerned with healing of trauma to soul, mind and body. It is, as it were, our virtual monastery's dispensary. Once, at Casamaris Abbey, I saw the monks in the dispensary giving medicine to the contadini, sometimes pennicillin; once, where a man had a sore needing to be dressed, applying to it a lotion from a bottle with the gentleness of a feather. Suddenly, I understood Dante's angels in the Purgatorio, cancelling the seven sins inscribed on his brow with a sword blade, by means of a feather from their wings, a manuscript quill reversed, and in what was standard medieval medical practice.

Godfriends' Discussion List

n the Middle Ages a group of men and women networked across Europe and wrote books for the contemplative life. They were called the 'Friends of God'. English grammar allows us to place God first, hence 'Godfriends'. We began in a theological library in Sussex, sensing that with the love of God and neighbour there were no boundaries between us; then, going into exile and into one room, filled with computer, books, blessed olive leaves, an anchorhold that is monastery, scriptorium, library and dispensary all in one, we re-established a similar network, on the Web and for the World. We are now in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and America. We are ecumenical. We are an anchorhold amidst the laity and in the world. We welcome you on our Godfriends' Discussion List

When Margery Kempe came from Lynn to visit Julian of Norwich in her anchorhold, they discoursed on the City in the Soul, and how it is through the Soul and Spirit that the mind and the body find healing, wholeness, peace. Both Julian and Margery wrote books, soul cities, their Logotherapy, speaking from their past through our present to your future. Cain, the first murderer, built the first city, in exile from God, but Abel was a pilgrim and built none, seeking God only. This Umilta Website is a such an Interior Castle, a cyber community, an internet anchorhold, beyond time and death. It gathers together saints and sinners at a heavenly banquet. It is for you.

Welcome to Teaching Ourselves, Contemplative Learning on the Web; You can covenant to study, for instance Dante's Florence, Julian's Norwich, not as in a competitive university, but as in a contemplative monastery, open to all, lay and clergy, women and men, old and young, poor and rich, using this Umilta webspace. A Lending Library can be shared with you. This Library and Study Centre from 1 August 2000 is housed in the Gatehouse, Piazzale Donatello, Florence. In May 2001, September 2002, June 2004 (and perhaps 2007/8), we held International Congresses in Florence on The City and the Book to which you are invited. See The City and the Book, Teaching Ourselves, A Country a School, and 'Thunders of White Silence' .
