Love is His Meaning
The Impact of Julian of Norwich
Julian of Norwich, England’s greatest mystic, became the first woman to write in the English language. The aim of this latest work is to enable newcomers to Julian to understand her complex theology and penetrate her deepest meaning. Using the major part of his original translation, A Revelation of Love, John Skinner inserts commentary and interpretation into the text. The result is a flowing account of Julian’s work where her voice is to be heard even more clearly.
