Revelations of Divine Love is dense, deeply intuitive, and theologically complex. The last thirty years have seen several translations, some academic, others literal, but none quite like this one which capture's Julian's deepest meanings and liberates her inspired insights.
According to John-Julian in the introduction to Revelations of Divine Love, Julian of Norwich (1342-ca.1416) was an English recluse who recounted the poignant, subtle, and radical insights granted to her in sixteen visions of the crucified Christ as she lay on what was believed to be her deathbed. Her miraculous recovery from that illness led to twenty more years of reflection and contemplation and finally to her writing this detailed account of her mystical experience.
Revelations of Divine Love is an essential guide to living a Christian life. This translation captures Julian’s deepest meanings and liberates her inspired insights. — sirreadalot.org
