Ancient Arabic manuscripts in the Franciscan Provincial archives to be restored

Three Book Conservation Alumni from West Dean College of Arts and Conservation have been awarded The Barakat Trust Major Award to be used for the conservation of the Islamic Manuscript Collection at the Franciscan Provincial Archives in Malta. Awarded annually, this is the first time the award has been given to a conservation project in Malta. The award covers material costs up to a maximum of £10,000 and the project will run until September 2023 – after that the manuscripts will be made available to researchers.

MY NEW WEBSITE LAUNCHED TODAY, 4 October 2018.
Solemnity of Saint Francis of Assisi

A website dedicated to Franciscan Studies, with reviews, books and articles that can be freely downloaded. This is my contribution to the spreading of the Franciscan message and to the initial and ongoing formation of Franciscans.

I thank Fr. Sandro Tomašević OFM for helping me create this website.

 

Welcome to Franciscan Studies

In this website you will find many of studies I’ve been working in the past. Hope you will find what you were looking for.

Praised be You, my Lord, with all Your creatures, especially Sir Brother Sun, Who is the day through whom You give us light. And he is beautiful and radiant with great splendour; of You, Most High, he bears the likeness. st. Francis of Assisi
