ulian of Norwich spoke of God as sitting in the city of our soul, and constructed a book of contemplative theology of that vision. Florence, too, is a city of a vision, of whose Republic Christ became King. In the space of five years it is intended to present four International Congresses upon this theme of the City and the Book, tracing the meaning of the book and the people who read it through and in a city it shapes and reflects. In May of 2001, September 2002, 3-5 June 2004, May/June 2006, we invite international scholars to present papers, and bookdealers, especially of facsimile editions of manuscripts, bookbinders, papermakers, calligraphers to come together to celebrate texts, books, libraries, skills, people, in the city of Florence. Guests to the city can stay in monasteries or in hotels or with friends.
