In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Editorial Following the results of a questionnaire sent to members of the Association , which supported overwhelmingly a new direction for Parergon, there have been changes in policy, format and personnel. Chris Eade, the editor since Parergon's inception, has resigned after ten years' hard work: without his sterling services to the journal it would not be in a position to contemplate more ambitious activities. A N Z A M R S owes a'great deal to him. Parergon will now appear as one annual issue, containing approximately the same amount of material as the three fasicles previously produced each year. The page size will remain much the same as before, but there will be a change in type and layout, partly necessitated by the use of a word processor. The machine being used is an NBI 3000 (Remington): if, after a paper has been accepted, contributors can present material on a disc compatible with this machine, the editor would be delighted. Papers will be sought from the whole field of medieval and renaissance studies—not only literature but also history, philosophy and fine art, history of science and so on. Contributions are not invited from members of the Association only; they are also welcome from other scholars, including those overseas. It is hoped that future issues will contain a judicious mixture of ex-conference papers and other submitted material both from within Australia and N e w Zealand and from further afield. Papers when submitted will be sent to one or more readers for comment . Contributors can expect to have some of these comments passed on for their consideration before the text of the article is finally established and accepted. This issue is a transitional one. All the papers in it derive from the A N Z A M R S conference held in Armidale in August 1982. They have however been read by referees and revised in the light of their comments. The subjects are literary and historical, though the literary predominates: the editor would prefer to see in the future a more even balance between these two elements. The approaches range from the detailed to the speculative, and the chronological span from the early Fathers of the Church to the lawcourts of sixteenth century England. The editor would like to see this diversity continuing in forthcoming issues. One final point, concerning the name of this journal: though a vocal minority has argued for a change, the majority of those replying to the questionnaire preferred that the name should remain unchanged.
