Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most engaging and complete collection available of this 14th century English mystic

The Revelations of Julian of Norwich is the first book written in English by a woman - in this case, by a 14th century recluse who recounts the poignant, subtle, and radical insights granted to her in sixteen visions of the crucified Christ as she lay on what was believed to be her deathbed. Julian's miraculous recovery from that illness then led to twenty more years of reflection and contemplation on those revelations and finally to her writing a detailed account of her mystical experience.

Her work - in the same Middle English as her contemporary Geoffrey Chaucer - is dense, deeply intuitive, and theologically complex. The Complete Julian is the first book to offer a modern translation of all of Julian's writings (including her complete Revelations), a complete analysis of her work, as well as original historical, religious, and personal background material that helps the reader comprehend the depth and profundity of her life and work.

Julian's Revelations] may well be the most important work of Christian reflection in the English language.

— Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury
