About the Author


Father John-Julian, OJN, is an Episcopal priest and monk. He has served parishes in Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Connecticut, was the founding Dean of the Seminary of the Streets in New York, has taught on the adjunct faculty of the University of Rhode Island and Hampshire College, and served as Director of the Social Service Institute which trained social workers for the State of Connecticut. In 1985 he founded the contemplative, semi-enclosed monastic Order of Julian of Norwich in Wisconsin which incorporates both monks and nuns with equal status under the same traditional vows. He has studied Julian of Norwich each day for over a quarter century. The Complete Julian is the product of over six years of prayerful study and research.
