Monk in Scriptorium, courtesy of holoweb.Welcome to our library of illuminated and benighted manuscripts. Although you will find humor, irony, and inspiration here, some of these pieces explore the gray zone between good and evil. If you wade into them from the side of the angels, you may meet yourself coming the other way.

Fundamentalists: For you, these manuscripts are anathema, proscribed, aveira, haram, etc. You read them at the risk of excommunication by the people of your faith, and damnation by the deity of your choice.
