The Filianic Scriptures, New Celestial Union Version
This website is maintained as a historical resource. It more or less contains the full known texts of the religious writings used by variety of Deanic, Madrian and Filianic sects active today. This compilation was originally published in 2009 and 2010 under the title, The Filianic Scriptures, New Celestial Union Version, and remains in print.

March 10, 2017: The Eastminster Critical Edition (ECE), the latest and most comprehensive version of the scriptures to date, is now available. ECE is a truly scholarly work, faithfully based on all major authoritative manuscripts and is a superior text in comparison with NCUV (which ECE's publisher rightfully calls "unreliable").

- The story of the New Celestial Union Version, an eight-year retrospective (Added on March 11, 2017)
- A strange irony of an "all-feminine" faith
As of January 1, 2017, this project has officially been concluded. Accordingly, I am releasing the remaining texts of the Second Revised Edition of the NCUV, including the 2010 breviary, on this site. This site will remain up as it has always been, and the print editions will remain available for purchase. Thank you!

Notice of Proposed Deletion
July 17, 2017: Recently the server that hosts this site underwent an extended outage due to a hacker attack. We also are getting many spams and automated user signups on this site and there is no good way to ensure the security of this site. We are therefore considering a deletion of this site and subsequent relocation of its contents to another, more secure website sometime this summer.
