If you haven’t read Julian already (or even if you have, in one of the dry, secular treatments by academic medievalists), we recommend The Complete Julian of Norwich, by Fr. John-Julian, the founder of the Order of Julian of Norwich, an American religious order for women and men. He is equally learned in language, context and history of the period and place, but reads and translates Julian with faculties academics don’t have: the eyes and ears of faith, which open new understandings of this most spiritual of writers. Bestselling author Anne Rice wrote the cover blurb; this volume reads!
