'Just because I am a woman, must I therefore believe that I must not tell you about the goodness of God, when I saw at the same time both his goodness, and his wish that it should be known?' Coming from a society where women were barred from serious writing and teaching, Julian, an anchorite in the great medieval city of Norwich, nevertheless used the English vernacular of the day to describe an extraordinary series of 'showings' which she received from God. In the famous parable of the Lord and the Servant, she reveals her penetrating insight into the mystery of salvation; and she moves towards the controversial belief that God's love will not allow any of humankind to be lost.

Julian Of Norwich

Little is known about this mystic writer who took up residence in St. Julian's Church, Norwich, England. The Showings are her meditations on her mystical experiences of May 8, 1373. Influenced by Neo-Platonism, she sees evil as less real than good. She focuses on the love of God and the care of Christ as mother for those who are devoted to him. In 1373, when she was thirty years old, Julian of Norwich received a series of sixteen visions. Pondering in prayer their meaning for twenty years, she gradually came to realise their full significance.
Written from the heart and borne from experience, Julian's Revelations of Divine Love captures her journey.
