We were very much living Julian's own context of
prayer, sometimes adjourning to say the Rosary in chapel
amidst Irish voices, sometimes interrupting our work to say
the Angelus, led by Sister Anna Maria, and always joining the
Sisters for Matins, Mass, and Vespers. One day we went in
search of St Bridget's Well. Otherwise we were intensely
working at this project together, checking the text and the
translation over and over again, discussing its points and its
contexts, and marvelling at the team of women
scribes and editors who had preceded us, centuries upon
centuries of nuns' careful work, preserving a treasured text
within first Brigittine, then Benedictine cloisters, at first
in England, then in exile on the Continent.

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.
