Julian of Norwich (1342 – 1416), also called Juliana of Norwich, was an English anchoress and an important Christian mystic and theologian. She is formally commemorated with a feast on 8 May in the Anglican Church, Episcopal Church, and Evangelical Lutheran Church.
This is a revelation of love that Jesus Christ, our endless bliss, made in sixteen shewings, or revelations particular.
Translated by Grace Warrack.
Written around 1395, this is the first book in the English language known to have been written by a woman.
