Om forfatteren

Little is known about this mystic writer who took up residence in St. Julian's Church, Norwich, England. The Showings are her meditations on her mystical experiences of May 8, 1373. Influenced by Neo-Platonism, she sees evil as less real than good. She focuses on the love of God and the care of vis mere Christ as mother for those who are devoted to him.

Kort biografi
Julian or Juliana of Norwich was an anchoress (female hermit) whose name was derived from the Church of St Julian in Norwich, England, where she lived in a small cell attached to the church and dedicated her life to prayer. She recorded her religious visions in a work published in about 1393 called Revelations of Divine Love. Her line, "All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well," is one of the most famous phrases in medieval literature.

This book contains some beautifully expressed ideas about God written by a 14th century Christian mystic. I enjoyed reading it!

Two of my favorite excerpts:

“…it is the natural yearning of the soul touched by the Holy Ghost to say, ‘God, of your goodness, give me yourself; you are enough for me, and anything less that I could ask for would not do you full honour. And if I ask anything that is less, I shall always lack something, but in you alone I have everything.’”

“…for the goodness of God is the highest object of prayer and it reaches down to our lowest need. It quickens our soul and gives it life, and makes it grow in grace and virtue… it is the same grace which the soul seeks and always will seek until we truly know him who has enclosed us in himself; for he does not despise what he has made, nor does he disdain to serve us…through love of the soul which he has made in his own likeness; for as the body is clad in the cloth, and the flesh in the skin, and the bones in the flesh, and the heart in the chest, so are we, soul and body, clad in the goodness of God and enclosed in it…”… (mere)

All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of things shall be well...

It feels slightly odd to write a book review of the divine revelations of Julian of Norwich. This is a translation of the long text, which describes the 16 revelations and contains the longer discussion on their meaning, 'anent certain points'. Julian's vision of a God of love is as famous as it is comforting.
