What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks' worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites that we link to.

Tranfiguring Flesh: A colloquium organised by the Institute for Theology Imagination and the Arts
'Theological reflection has left an indelible mark upon the Western imagination and its art. Creeds and confessions have "taken flesh" as they have been explored by writers, artists, poets, and musicians. Theology however, has often been a reluctant partner in this dialogue. One of the core convictions of the Institute is that despite this reluctance, genuine conversation between Theology, Imagination, and the Arts is possible--indeed, essential. Just as the arts and the imagination have been animated and enriched by theological reflection, so may the theological enterprise be advanced through careful and scholarly engagement with the arts and the imagination'.

'I am an Anglican priest with 16 years experience and looking for an exchange to east coast of USA or UK in early 2001. I am Rector of the parish of Hervey Bay which is a three hour drive north of Brisbane and gate way to Fraser Island which is the largest sand Island in the world and world heritage listed. The climate is sub-tropical with abundant sea breezes. I have an associate who would take responsibility for parish leadership, so the person on exchange would only have Sunday duties and some mid week duties. The Rectory has five bedrooms and there is a car available. For more information send email to Reverend Mike Donaldson at'.

Scenes From the Life of St Francis', by Valerie Martin, and 'Francis of Assisi', by Adrian House.

Wonderwoman of the Middle Ages
A new book by Fiona Maddocks about Hildegard of Bingen. Reviewed by Peter Stanford in The Independent and by Margaret Reynolds in The Times. We are amused by the craft of the Times' headline writer. The author, Fiona Maddocks, had this to say in The Observer about her subject and her book.
