The Julian Portfolio of the Julian Library Project began as a series of lectures on contemplatives given to the Hastings Quaker Meeting and held in the Anglican Holmhurst Theological Library, St Leonards-on-Sea, Sussex, six years ago, concurrently with the work of editing the extant Julian of Norwich Manuscripts, and these booklets accompanied the lectures. They present primary documentation concerning women's theology through time. Their form replicates the fascicles written and hand-sewn by the Benedictine English contemplative nuns who studied and preserved Julian of Norwich's text in exile from England in the seventeenth century. Our Bottega marbles the paper and binds the portfolios.

Bruno Vivoli, Florentine Prints and Engravings
We can print and frame these engravings. A numbered, signed, framed print sells for $100/€100. Without frame, €50/$50. Our latest Bruno Vivoli engraving is of Julian of Norwich.

In via dei Neri, 71, 73, 75 red, in Florence, you can buy Dante chairs, Savonarola chairs, from G. Cipriani, for just over a hundred euro. (For instance to buy two at 110 euro each and ship them to Los Angeles for a further 145 euro would come to a total of 365 euro. We have just shipped four to Newfoundland, Canada.) These are folding chairs, crafted with curving wood. You take out the back, lift the slats in the middle of the seat and the whole chair folds up and can be placed in a flat box and easily shipped home. You see them grandly in every museum in Florence, in every church in Florence. We have four in our library. Just one of these present in a room spells out the whole Renaissance. Imagine yourself in one of these reading the facsimile of Savonarola's Breviarium above (Il Breviario di Frate Girolamo Savonarola. Riproduzione fototipica dell'incunabolo Banco Rari 310 della Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale di Firenze. Firenze: Galluzzo, SISMEL, 1999. Il Breviario di Frate Girolamo Savonarola. Postille autografe, trascritte e commentate a cure di Armando F. Verde, O.P. Firenze: Galluzzo, SISMEL, 1999.) Your guests will appreciate your making a small square cushion. Fifteen minutes otherwise is the maximum time one can sit in them. Don't put off purchasing them for another year. Cipriani are the only sellers left of these in Florence and are soon retiring from the business. Then there will be none. We are describing a nearly-lost and most beautiful culture.

aaa
The wooden chairs with lions' heads on the arms are now discontinued. Those remaining have wooden rings on the ends of the arms and are just as intriguing to children and adults. The back is carved on the other side. I prefer the simpler one. The chairs are practical and beautiful.

Julian of Norwich Icons
These are in several sizes, a free version of the above icon, hand-painted on wood, in red, gold, black, white, carried out in prayer. Donation. Specify large, medium, small. Send mailing address.
 

We have helped the Urban Development Project of All Saints' Cathedral, Nairobi, Kenya with selling rosaries made by women raising families in slums. These can be purchased from Julia Bolton Holloway, the entire proceeds going to the women involved.
