- Hello Everybody,
Thanks You-ALL for accepting me as a member of your List!
As an historian as well as a musician of-profession I've been living
my agnostical-life quite happily.
About one year ago, and "by accident" I saw myself being confronted
with aspects of orthodox-christian-religion and felt "obliged" in
some way to seriously read the Paulinic-Letters and the Gospels.
This reading happened to lead me immediately to study the origins of
Christianity, being the Gnostical-Idea.
In short: My reason for joining this Group is to LEARN from you; and
to evoluate what I recognize as having been all-the-time hidden in
myself, without having had the opportunity of sharing it with any
people who should be able to "understand".
(What a nice-thing is "internet")!

Thank you, Jana, for noticing them.

And ya know, that was the one suggestion you wrote me that I was the most hesitant to attempt. There's something about the dual-layered papyrus and its almost glossy sheen that made me wonder if such coarse measures would destroy the whole thing, but the more I've thought about it (along with your renewed convictions), the more I believe it would indeed yield a desirable finish. I imagine the weathered results would be akin to repeatedly wadding up a sheet of paper to the point that it becomes more like a thin piece of cloth rather than a crisp piece of paper. Only this way, you avoid the wrinkles!
