The essays are intended for everyone, everywhere. They are available on the Internet and, where asterisked, also as printed and hand-sewn booklets, as fascicles in Florentine bound portfolios, like those produced by the nuns in exile who were preserving Julian's texts at the Reformation, as well as on this CD. These asterisked titles in hard copy may give coloured tipped-on plates, or photocopies of manuscripts, or the original Hebrew, Greek, Runes or Middle English, of material that is not accessible to the Web for copyright or technical reasons. It is especially advisable for libraries with women's studies holdings to purchase the Julian Library Portfolio as it includes autograph facsimiles of texts written by women. Titles underlined in colour are hyperlinked and their essays can be called up by clicking on them. Those followed by are external links, needing an internet connection to call them up. (Links in Icelandic are called 'tenglar', knots, tangles.) You are encouraged to link to, print out, save and use any of the online materials listed here, if you courteously cite the source (not to do so is plagiary); with the exception of illustrative materials for which copyright may need to be renegotiated.

Sister Anna Maria Reynolds C.P. was
the greatest editor Julian ever had. During WWII she
transcribed 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. In her
nineties, blind, frail, she created a fine CD in which she
discussed 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, Bublin 9, EIRE.
