Julian of Norwich is Norfolk’s premier mystic and she was a forward thinking woman. In the 1300s she had a number of visions which she believed had come to her from God. She published a book in 1373 called Revelations of Divine Love to instruct and spread the word of her “seeings”, as she called them, and this book has been regarded as the first great work of English prose. What can modern people learn from her writings? Here TV historian and medievalist Janina Ramirez offers insights into Mother Julian’s life and times to bring a fresh insight into her world. After reading this, watch the television programme that accompanied this book and take a stroll to visit Julian’s shrine and cell.
