Abstract: In this volume Peter Serracino Inglott (1936-2012) reflects on the life and writings of the Blessed Adeodata Pisani, a Benedictine nun who lived at St Peter's Monastery in Mdina, Malta, in the nineteenth century. His text 'Dialogue with an Heiress: The Secret Life of a Maltese Nun: Adeodata Pisani (1806-55)' includes an analysis of her work 'The Garden', which he considers to be a "micro-masterpiece of spiritual writing". The work is edited and introduced by Petra Caruana Dingli, and includes contributions by Hector Scerri and Ranier Fsadni, as well as the text of an oratorio in Maltese by Serracino Inglott entitled 'Is-soru tal-Mdina'. The work is fully illustrated with photographs by Daniel Cilia.
