Introducing Julian

Woman of Norwich


This book, beautifully illustrated by the author herself, introduces Julian to a wider readership by setting her in her own time and place and giving a selection of illustrated readings from Revelations of Divine Love. It is a book that will provide many hours of fruitful reflection.

ISBN: 978-1-905039-14-2 Categories: , , , Tag:


Here is a fine book which gives a unique view into the time and place of Julian’s life. With careful attention and remarkable clarity, Elizabeth Ruth Obbard paints a vivid and detailed picture of the formative influences on Julian’s spirituality. The reader is drawn into the sights and sounds of fourteenth century England with all of its colour, activity and unrest, and there meets Julian whose experience of God’s love overflows into the lives of those who come to her anchorhold. The excerpts from Julian’s Shewings included in this book aptly highlight some of the most salient themes of her mystical theology. After reading this book and meditating on the lovely illustrations, the reader is sure to believe that she or he has truly met Julian, Woman of Norwich, in flesh, blood and spirit.
