We were very much living
own context of prayer, sometimes adjourning to say the Rosary in chapel
amidst Irish voices, sometimes interrupting our work to say the
led by Sister Anna Maria, and always joining the Sisters for Matins,
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
the translation over and over again, discussing its points and its
and marvelling at the team of women scribes
editors who had preceded us, centuries upon centuries of nuns' careful
work, preserving a treasured text within first Brigittine, then
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.
