from the manufacturer

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. Julians 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 Julians 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. Julians Revelations may well be the most important work of Christian reflection in the English language. Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury
