In her travels along the Information Superhighway, the High Priestess has found many links to essays and other items of interest to do with Northanger Abbey. They are hereby listed for the benefit of all Cultists, although the High Priestess cautions that the links listed below do not necessarily reflect her opinion or that of any other Cultists and they should not be taken as Absolute Truth just because somebody converted them to HTML and uploaded them to the World Wide Web. Surf away, but take a lesson from Catherine and do so with a healthy dose of Da Mannish skepticism. (The High Priestess would like to add that the essays on the Cult site should be read the same way; after all, Henry would expect nothing less of us.)
The links will open in a new browser window; simply close the window when you are finished with that site to return to this page.
