About "Introducing Juliam, Woman of Norwich"
Mystical teachings from a 14th century Norwich, England woman are featured in this book. Using selected illustrated excerpts from Julian's own Revelations of Divine Love, Elizabeth Obbard has created a world where we learn about Julian, her life, insights, and hope at a time of widespread cynicism. Julian writes from her own experience with a directness of manner and speech that certainly appeals to contemporary readers. The selections give us a vivid view of life in 14th century England, and Julian's confidence, hope, and love in an era of skepticism.
