Julian (or Juliana) of Norwich, also known as Dame Julian or Mother Julian (late 1342 – after 1416) was an English anchorite of the Middle Ages

Julian (or Juliana) of Norwich, also known as Dame Julian or Mother Julian (late 1342 – after 1416) was an English anchorite of the Middle Ages.

Saved from the brink of death, Julian of Norwich dedicated her life to solitary prayer and the contemplation of the visions she had received. About twenty or thirty years after her illness, near the end of the fourteenth century, she wrote down her visions and her understanding of them. This is the Grace Warrack translation that brought this great work the recognition it deserved.

Revelations of Divine Love is a medieval book of Christian mystical devotions. It was written by an anchoress called Dame Julian, now known as Julian of Norwich, about whom almost nothing is known. Julian, who lived all her life in the English city of Norwich, wrote about the sixteen mystical visions or "shewings" she received in 1373, when she was thirty

Julian of Norwich was the most important English mystic of the 14th century. Her spirituality is strongly Trinitarian and basically Neoplatonic.

Separate texts of both Julian's works, A Vision Showed to a Devout Woman and A Revelation of Love, with modern punctuation and paragraphing and partly regularized spelling. Julian of Norwich was the most important English mystic of the 14th century.

A Book of Showings is a Christian fiction novel

A Book of Showings is a Christian fiction novel. It offers an insight into 16 visions that the author claims to have witnessed when laying in bed after falling seriously ill. The author believes that the visions came from God, and she tries to explain the divine meaning of each flashback in various chapters of the book. Julian went on to record her visions in a work called Showings (also known as Shewings, Book of Showings, and Revelations of Divine Love), composing two versions, the so-called short text (ST), presumably written soon after the visions occurred, and the long text (LT), written some twenty years later. In the short text, Julian provides brief descriptions of each revelation.

As a female mystic and theologian who was uniquely recognized (in a time when most women were not) for her holiness, Julian of Norwich also came to be known as a catechist, prophet, and spiritual director. Showing of Love records her own healing encounter with divine love and has for many centuries been a source of healing and inspiration for others.

Readers of Julian's work find her belief that God sits in our soul as a fair city to be of profound value. That city is every city, Mary its queen, Christ its king. Julian offers these layers in rich text and variant readings.

Julian dedicated years of her life to shaping Showing of Love, at the end rewriting it to preserve it from censorship. The anchoress lived in St. Julian's churchyard in Norwich. Her text was saved from destruction by nuns in Brigittine and Benedictine convents, first in England, then in exile after the Reformation. Julian's writings were later published by the Benedictines in 1670. They reveal her strong links with Benedict that continue to have lasting value for readers today. Includes two-color ink on inside pages.

Julia Bolton Holloway, PhD, is a vowed hermit living in Florence, Italy. She has published seventeen other works on important historical figures.

This book truly is one that I am proud to own. I even just like having it in my hand. By that I mean, it is so unique and conveys so much that it is an inspiring read. While reading I don't use a normal method at times...I just open the book and wherever it opens is where I start, as if it is calling to me. I am never disappointed. I have read it all the way through but find it so beautiful and deep that every time that I reread it, I discover something I didn't understand the first time around. I hope this review will help others to find this treasure. It is deep, so don't give up if at first it seems hard to comprehend, it is well worth taking the time to understand and to love.

I have several translations of Julian of Norwich, but this one is by far the best, and the one I keep returning to.
