England, this book records the visions and prescient theological world-view of Julian, an anchoress at Norwich. Her unique and visceral retelling of both the birthing and the dying of Christ, the first book to be written in English by a woman, has never been excelled in the clarity and eloquence of its language. Here, preserving the humility of the original in a modern idiom, is a metered poetic version of her revelations: ...she whos Mother of our Savior Is mother of all who shall be saved- And our Savior our very Mother, In whom we are endlessly born Yet never shall come out of him.
