Julian of Norwich, a medieval English mystic who spent the latter part of her life as an enclosed anchoress, is largely known through her extraordinary Revelations, one of the most popular and influential works of Christian mysticism. But until now, the woman herself was an elusive figure. Now, in this fascinating portrait, Veronica Mary Rolf has offered a convincing reconstruction of Julian's life in fourteenth-century Norwich, along with a comprehensive commentary on her Revelations-rendered here in a new and faithful translation from the Middle English.
Veronica Rolf is an independent scholar of medieval studies and comparative literature, educated at Columbia University.
