Details

"Julian is, without doubt, one of the most wonderful of all Christian voices. She gets greater and greater in my eyes as I grow older." -- Thomas Merton


Julian of Norwich (1342-c1416) is considered by many to be one of the greatest English mystics. In 1373, she received a series of sixteen visions centred on the person and sufferings of Jesus, and on the Trinity. A short time later, she wrote an account of them and much later, after prayer and reflection, wrote eighty-six chapters called Showings of Divine Love.


The times in which Julian lived were fraught with political, social, and economic upheavals in both Church and state. There are, indeed, many parallels to the present age. This helps to explain why Julian speaks so loudly to us today after six hundred years of silence.


This gem of a book offers insightful and challenging thoughts on Julian's writings which will aid devotion and provide inspiration for prayer and meditation.
