A Companion to Julian of Norwich

In the year 1373 a young Englishwoman whose name we do not know—she is called "Julian" because she lived part of her life as an enclosed solitary in the church of St. Julian in Norwich—experienced a series of intense visions that she later recorded in two versions.

This edition incorporates the long text of Julian's revelations, as translated by Father John-Julian Swanson, and a commentary written by Frederick S. Roden that is reflective yet learned. It is designed to draw the reader more fully into an understanding and experience of what Julian tells us she saw and heard.

In the text and commentary we begin to comprehend the truth Julian summarizes at the end of the Showings: "Love was His meaning."
