JULIAN OF NORWICH ~

HER 'SHOWING OF LOVE' AND ITS CONTEXTS

INDEX
+




ULIAN OF NORWICH lived in an English cathedral city in the fourteenth, and the beginning of the fifteenth, centuries.

A contemplative, she wrote a theological treatise about her Showing of Love that can speak to us today.

She may also have participated in a medieval form of the Internet, called the Friends of God, in which both men and women, across Europe and through time shared their contemplative texts and supported each other in that work of contemplation, hallowing Creator and Creation .

he 'Julian of Norwich Showing of Love and Its Contexts' Website is an electronic version of a portfolio of pamphlets created for a series of lectures given to Quakers on Medieval Mystics in an Anglican convent. The essays are intended for everyone, everywhere. They are available on the Internet and, * where asterisked, also as printed and hand-sewn booklets, as fascicles in Florentine bound portfolios, like those produced by the nuns in exile who were preserving Julian's texts at the Reformation, as well as on this CD. *These asterisked titles in hard copy may give coloured tipped-on plates, or photocopies of manuscripts, or the original Hebrew, Greek, Runes or Middle English, of material that is not accessible to the Web for copyright or technical reasons. It is especially advisable for libraries with women's studies holdings to purchase the Julian Library Portfolio as it includes autograph facsimiles of texts written by women. Titles underlined in colour are hyperlinked and their essays can be called up by clicking on them. Those followed by §are external links, needing an internet connection to call them up. (Links in Icelandic are called 'tenglar', knots, tangles.) You are encouraged to link to, print out, save and use any of the online materials listed here, if you courteously cite the source (not to do so is plagiary); with the exception of illustrative materials for which copyright may need to be renegotiated.

Sister Anna Maria Reynolds C.P. was the greatest editor Julian ever had.
During WWII she transcribed the extant microfilms with a microscope,
a word at a time, for her Leeds University MA and Ph.D. theses. Subsequent
editions plagiarized her meticulous work. In her nineties, blind, frail, she
created a fine CD in which she discussed Julian with total recall of the text.



 And Father Nathanael Smyth of Beloved Memory             
whose icon of 'Saint Julian of Norwich' expresses her
Benedictinism.


Fr Paolo Molinari, SJ

The Jesuits’ Postulator General, Fr. Paolo Molinari, SJ, whose first book was on Julian of Norwich, researched the lives of candidates for beatification and sainthood, Jesuits and others. Watching over him at the Curia in Rome are Jesuit saints Jogues, Borgia, Ignatius, and Xavier.

 




Pope Benedict XVI spoke on Julian of Norwich at the Papal Audience, 1 December 2010 http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/audiences/2010/documents/hf_ben-xvi_aud_20101201_it.html#
