'All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well' Julian of Norwich is one of the most celebrated figures of the English Middle Ages. She is esteemed as one of the subtlest writers and profoundest thinkers of the period for her account of the revelations that she experienced in 1373. Julian lived as an anchoress in Norwich, and after recovering from a serious illness she described the visions that had come to her during her suffering. She conceived of a loving and compassionate God, merciful and forgiving, and believed in our ability to reach self-knowledge through sin. She wrote of God as our mother, and embraced strikingly independent theological opinions. This new translation conveys the poise and serenity of Julian's prose style to the modern reader. It includes both the short and long texts, written twenty years apart, through which Julian developed her ideas. In his introduction Barry Windeatt considers Julian's astonishingly positive vision of humanity and its potential for spiritual transformation.

Teachings from this fourteenth-century mystic provide spiritual direction and call for you to open yourself, body and soul, to divine love. Many people are familiar with the phrase “All shall be well” but do not know much, if anything, about Julian of Norwich, the fourteenth-century English mystic who wrote those words. Thomas Merton declared her to be “without a doubt one of the most wonderful of all Christian voices,” and former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams says that her writings “may well be the most important work of Christian reflection in the English language.” This accessible introduction to Julian’s Revelations of Divine Love, an extended reflection on a series of her mystical visions, includes an informative introduction that addresses the historical, cultural and sociological context of Julian’s life and writings. Mary Earle’s facing-page commentary focuses on Julian’s profoundly hopeful vision of humanity and God, her creative imagery and her rigorous honesty about the spiritual life. Drawing directly from Julian’s text, Earle addresses a variety of topics essential to understanding Julian’s mysticism, including the infinite nature of God, the life of prayer, God’s suffering with us, the eternal and undying life of the soul, the motherhood of Jesus and the motherhood of God, “all shall be well” and more.

2013 Reprint of 1952 Newman Press Second Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This is one of the great classical medieval English works of devotion. Little is known of the author except that she was a recluse who lived in a cell attached to the church of St. Julian at Norwich. In 1373 she received sixteen private revelations from the Lord, dealing with his Passion, the truths of the Faith and the advancement of her own spiritual life. The work reveals a mind that has penetrated deeply to the mysteries of the Catholic religion, both on its doctrinal and its personal sides. Julian of Norwich was a very spiritual, devout soul, deeply sensitive to the beauty of holiness and centered wholeheartedly on the love and service of God. Although the work attracted little attention when it first appeared, it has since become one of the most famous books dealing with divine communications ever written.

1901. Without any special study of the literature of mysticism for purposes of comparison, in reading Julian's book one is struck by a few characteristics wherein it differs from many other mystical writings, as well as by qualities that belong to most or all of that general designation. Julian does not set out to teach methods of any kind for the gradual drawing near of man to God, but to record and show forth a revelation, granted once, of God's actual nearness to the soul, and for this revelation she herself had been prepared by the stirring of her conscience, her love and her understanding, in a word of her faith.

Coming from a society where women were barred from serious writing and teaching, Julian, an anchoress in the great medieval city of Norwich, nevertheless used the English vernacular of the day to describe an extraordinary series of "showings" that she received from God. Through her experiences, she identifies the female nature of Christ's suffering, the motherhood of God, and, using images from domestic daily life, emphasizes the homeliness of God's love. This new translation from the Middle English, which includes both the long and the short versions of her Revelations, preserves all the directness of expression and the rich complexity of her thoughts, offering a work that stands alongside The Cloud of Unknowing and Langland's Piers Plowman.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1902 edition. Excerpt: ... rne knowing the sweet touching of grace; and wilfully amend us upon teaching of Holy Church after that the sin is grievous; and go forth with God in love: and neither on that one side fall over low, enclining to despair; ne on that other side be over reckless, as we give no force: but meekly know our feebleness, witting that we may not stand the twinkling of an eye, but with keeping of grace; and reverently cleave to God, in him xmly trusting. For otherwise is the beholding of God, and otherwise is the beholding of man. For it longeth to man meekly to accuse himself; and it longeth to the proper goodness of our Lord God courteously to excuse man. And these be two parties that were shewed in the double chear, in which the Lord beheld the falling of his loved servant. That one was shewed outward, full meekly and mildly with great ruth and pity: and that other of inward endless love. And right thus will our good Lord that we accuse our self wilfully, and truly see and know his everlasting love that he hath to us, and his plentuous mercy. And thus graciously to see and know both together, is the meek accusing that our good Lord asketh of us: and himself worketh there it is; and this is the lower party of mans life. And it was shewed in the outward chear: in which shewing, I saw two parts. The one is the ruful falling of man: that other is the worshipful asseth that our Lord hath made for man. That other chear was shewed inward; and that was more highly and all one: for the life and the vertue that we have in the lower party is of the higher. And it cometh down to us of the kind love of the self [same], by grace. Between that one and that other is right naught; for it all is one love: which one blessed love hath now in us double working; for...
