Julian of Norwich is one of the most famous Christian mystics. Her work, Revelations of Divine Love, is considered one of the greatest Christian works of the medieval era. This edition is translated by Grace Warrack. A table of contents is included.

About the Author

Julian lived in Norwich from 1342 - 1416; but 14th century England was far from the Merry Old England of legend. It was the time of the Black Death which struck Norwich at least three times during her life. It was also a period of social unrest brought on by the shortage of labour, high taxes and bad harvests which led to the Peasants' Revolt. There are few sure facts about Julian's life. But at the age of 30, while living at home with her mother, she believed herself to be dying with a serious illness. It was at this time she had a series of visions of Jesus. On her recovery, she recorded them in brief and then 20 years later, as an anchoress, wrote them down in a longer form in the Middle-English of Chaucer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful tool for meditation. 22 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a book of technique but an ample store of themes for Christian meditation. Julian was an anchorite who lived and died sealed into a monastic cell.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent rendition with updated language 25 Mar 2013
By Cheryl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have previously read Revelations of Divine Love in a version whose language was not updated. This takes the text and modernizes the language without losing the original flavor of mysticism. In the original version, one had to read the text several times in order to begin to understand how the language flowed and to understand, by use of context what certain words meant. This converts the old middle English to modern English and the tone is kept the same. I read both versions side by side and this version was nearly identical to the older one except for the updating and the text really flows. I highly recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revelations of Divine Love 15 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Julian of Norwich was a 14th century mystic/anchorite who discovered the mystery of God in the simplest of creation - an acorn!
Her writings lead us to simpler understanding of God in our lives and to appreciate God as Mother/Father/Nurturer/Creator.

5.0 out of 5 stars much easier reading 29 Mar 2013
By Mary Breden - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I also found this version much easier to read than other versions. The language is modernized so that it is possible to concentrate on what she is saying, instead of having to put all my effort into deciphering how she is saying it.

Dame Julian expresses this amazing love from God. Life in 1300 couldn't have been easy and yet she saw love in everything.

If you want to know what love is, read Julian's text. A revelation a day will inspire, and the words she writes will never grow old. A lovely book.
