      (Only tangentially related to NTTC, but ...)

      The Saint Catherine Foundation's website features a report by Nicholas Pickwoad about the new boxes that are being used to store the monastery's library's maunscripts. A link to the report is at

      Clearly they put a lot of thought into the design.

      It occurs to me that these boxes, or boxes a lot like them, would make nice thank-you gifts for the custodians of manuscripts who allow their manuscripts to to be photographed and for the photographs to be placed online.

      (There's an article there by Nikolas Sarris about book-binding tools at St. Catherine's, too.)

      Yours in Christ,
