Julian's Cell

Ralph Milton

$43.99

Paperback
A book of historical fiction, this is the story of a remarkably evocative and articulate woman who was a 14th century mystic and anchorite. Believed to be the first woman to write a book in the English language, she was a woman of deep faith and character. Her writing is noted for its optimism and sensuality. Julian's Cell is history made alive through the storyteller's art. It tells the earthly story of "Katherine" -- daughter of a stern and bitter mother. Married at age 16 to a man named Walter, she loses both her children and her husband during the great plague. She has visions of the passion of Christ and becomes an anchorite -- "buried alive" in a cell attached to St. Julian's church to lead a life devoted to prayer and spiritual counsel. She becomes known as Mother Julian.
