Julian of Norwich, the fourteenth/early fifteenth-century anchoress and mystic, is one of the most important and best-known figures of the Middle Ages. Her "Revelations", intense visions of the divine, have been widely studied and read; the first known writings of an English woman, their influence extends over theology and literature. However, many aspects of both her life and thought remain enigmatic. This exciting new collection offers a comprehensive, accessible coverage of the key aspects of debate surrounding Julian. It places the author within a wide range of contemporary literary, social, historical and religious contexts, and also provides a wealth of new insights into manuscript traditions, perspectives on her writing and ways of interpreting it, building on the work of many of the most active and influential researchers within Julian studies, and including the fruits of the most recent, ground-breaking findings.It will therefore be a vital companion for all of Julian's readers in the twenty-first century. Dr Liz Herbert McAvoy is Senior Lecturer in Gender in English and Medieval Studies at Swansea University. Contributors to this book are: Kim M.Phillips, Cate Gunn, Alexandra Barratt, Denise M. Baker, Diane Watt, E. A. Jones, Annie Sutherland, Barry Windeatt, Marleen Cre, Elisabeth Dutton, Elizabeth Robertson, Laura Saetveit Miles, Liz Herbert Mcavoy, Ena Jenkins, Vincent Gillespie, Sarah Salih.
