Overview

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. Through her experiences, she identifies the female nature of Christ's suffering and the motherhood of God, and, using images from domestic daily life, emphasizes the homeliness of God's love. 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. This new translation, which includes both the long and short versions of her Revelations, preserves all the directness of expression and the rich complexity of her thought; offering a work which stands alongside The Cloud of Unknowing and Langland's Piers Plowman.

    Beautiful

    I read this in a college class and I fell in love with her language. It's been about 6 months since I read it so I don't remember very many details, however, her words inspired me to ask God for things that I had always wanted but never had the strength for. Through her I have opened a new chapter in my faith. This truly is a work of art. There are neither words that I could say that would do enough justice to the message or the meaning of this work, nor are there words that I would write that would help anyone to understand how this book has affected my life. All I can say is that to believe me you must read it, and if you do there will be no regrets.
