Julian of Norwich: A Contemporary Translation
By: Mirabai Starr (author)Paperback
This is a fresh and contemporary rendering of one of the most loved and influential spiritual texts of all time. It brings alive the message and spirituality of this great 14th-century mystic to 21st century readers. At the age of 30, Julian of Norwich, a contemporary of Chaucer, was suffering a severe illness and believed she was on her deathbed. She had a series of intense visions of Jesus and recovered. Julian wrote down the narration of the visions shortly after they occurred and expanded on them 20 to 30 years later in what became the first book written in English by a woman. Her message remains strikingly relevant today: * that failure is an opportunity to learn and grow * that God's love has nothing to do with retribution and everything to do with compassion * in spite of appearances, all is well.
Mirabai Starr is professor of Philosophy and World Religions at the University of New Mexico-Taos. She speaks and teaches internationally on the writings of the mystics and contemplative practice, and is a noted translator of medieval spiritual texts.
