The choicest of our letters is one half (i.e. Mor) of the name (i.e. Muire Mor) given to Mary, God’s mother, owing to her great duty; this half of the Virgin’s name is, owing to its proclaiming of glory, formed from the Virgin’s name (i.e. Muire) spelt with O. No mere wife bore the greatest of all sons, no son of mere man was the Prince of Paths; thy progeny (O Mary)... Heaven’s land . . .. up from His shoes’ white sole (86)

In Paradise dwell our Mothers...They sing the Song of the Sea with great joy and many holy angels with them...In the time-to-come, the Holy Presence, the Shekhina, will return from her exile in the world. (132)

Shekhina: Talmudic term for the created splendor of light which acts as an intermediary between God and man, and which sometimes takes on human form. One of many female incarnations of Divinity referred to in Hebrew literature; believed to physically be present with the people as they wandered in the desert for 40 years. When the Temple was destroyed, the Shekhina had to flee and divinity was split apart. Yahweh is composed of 4 letters: Yod, which stands for Father, Heh, which stands for Mother, Vav, which stands for Son, and Heh, which stands for Daughter. The Shekhina is associated with the Heh letter. According to Saadiah Gaon, the Shekhina is identical with kvod he-Shem (’the glory of God’), which served as an intermediary between God and man during the prophetic experience.

Provence: Ancient Europe’s cultural melting pot. “Celts, Egyptians and Phoenicians created a sophisticated civilization at the mouth of the Rhône River long before the Greek pirates of Jason arrived to plunder it.” After the fall of Jerusalem, it became the largest Jewish urban center west of Alexandria.
