Revelations of Divine Love

( 1 )

Overview

Julian (or Juliana, no one is quite sure) was a Christian mystic born in 1342 at Norwich, England. Devout and sincere she prayed for three boons - a personal understanding of Christ's passion, physical illness to the point of death, and 'three wounds': sincere contrition, loving compassion, and a true yearning for God.

Overview

Julian (or Juliana, no one is quite sure) was a Christian mystic born in 1342 at Norwich, England. Devout and sincere she prayed for three boons - a personal understanding of Christ's passion, physical illness to the point of death, and 'three wounds': sincere contrition, loving compassion, and a true yearning for God. Not until she was 30 years old were her prayers answered. In 1373 she suffered a severe and mysterious malady which prompted a series of visions of Christ's crucifixion in which she stood below the cross with Mary His mother.
Julian spent the next twenty years contemplating those visions, eventually dictating her revelations and deep reflections to a scribe (she describes herself as "a simple creature unlettered"). The result is this present work, the first book authored by a woman in English. More than fifteen years after her experience, Julian believed she finally understood its true meaning:
"Who showed it to you? Love. What did He show you? Love. Why did He show it? For love. Hold yourself in this truth..."

Meet the Author

English mystic of the fourteenth century, author or recipient of the vision contained in the book known as the "Sixteen Revelations of Divine Love".

The original form of her name appears to have been Julian. She was probably a Benedictine nun, living as a recluse in an anchorage of which traces still remain in the east part of the churchyard of St. Julian in Norwich, which belonged to Carrow Priory.

According to her book, this revelation was "shewed" to her on 8 or 14 May (the readings differ), 1373, when she was thirty years and a half old. This would refer her birth to the end of 1342. Her statement, that "for twenty years after the time of this shewing, save three months, I had teaching inwardly", proves that the book was not written before 1393. An early fifteenth-century manuscript, recently purchased for the British Museum from the Amherst Library, states that she "yet is on life, Anno Domini 1413". It is probable that this is the manuscript cited by Francis Blomefield, the eigtheenth-century historian of Norfolk, and that a misreading of the date led to the statement that she was still living in 1442.
