On 8 May 1373, 30-year-old Julian of Norwich, sick and near death, had a series of visions of Christ. In these 16 visions she learnt about God’s loving nature. God in Julian’s visions was not angry and wrathful. Instead, the three properties of God were presented as life, love and light, and all of His creation was good, including his servant, Man. In Julian’s version, Man is not to blame for his sin; instead it is something that he must experience and overcome in his spiritual journey with God. The version of Christian theology presented in Revelations of Divine Love – the first published book in English attributed to a woman – was highly liberal and incredibly progressive for its time. The book contains some of the most profound spiritual writing ever written and remains a perennial favourite among Christians.

Author Bio: Julian of Norwich

Julian of Norwich (c.1342–c.1416) was a reclusive medieval English mystic and spiritual writer. She was an anchoress at the church of St. Julian, Norwich, where she received sixteen visions, which she recounted as she lay on what was believed to be her deathbed. Her miraculous recovery from that illness led to twenty more years of reflection and contemplation and finally to her writing about her visions in Revelations of Divine Love.
