Rate this:
A 14th-century English mystic who enclosed herself for life in order to fully develop her relationship with God after a series of revelations, Julian of Norwich and her writings are still studied by Christian theologians. Her prose, some of the most terrifying and compelling, is the first to refer to God as "She," forging the way for inclusive language that is used in many Bibles today. This program offers a concise overview of Julian's life, times, and writings, along with commentary by Anne Savage of McMaster University, who discusses influential contemporary books such as Holy Maidenhood and A Guide for Anchoresses along with the reception of Julian's writings by the medieval Church.
