Revelations of Divine Love

'All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well'
Julian of Norwich is one of the most celebrated figures of the English Middle Ages. She is esteemed as one of the subtlest writers and profoundest thinkers of the period for her account of the revelations that she experienced in 1373. Julian lived as an anchoress in Norwich, and after recovering from a serious illness she described the visions that had come to her during her suffering. She conceived of a loving and compassionate God, merciful and forgiving, and believed in our ability to
reach self-knowledge through sin. She wrote of God as our mother, and embraced strikingly independent theological opinions.
This new translation conveys the poise and serenity of Julian's prose style to the modern reader. It includes both the short and long texts, written twenty years apart, through which Julian developed her ideas. In his introduction Barry Windeatt considers Julian's astonishingly positive vision of humanity and its potential for spiritual transformation.

Rezension
... not only is Julian of Norwich's unique voice captured, the translator's deft touch ensures it's engaging and understandable. In fact over and over again Julian (and by extension, Professor Windeatt) prove that the simplest statements hold the deepest truths. The Bookbag, Rev Michael Johnson
