About the Book

This historical biography follows the extraordinary life of Julian of Norwich. She lived through the dreadful bubonic plague that killed close to 50% of Europeans. Being an anchoress, she ‘sheltered in place’ and developed a deep wisdom that she shared in her book, Showings, which was the first book in English by a woman. A theologian way ahead of her time, Julian develops a feminist understanding of God as mother at the heart of nature’s goodness. Fox shares what isn’t typically written in a medieval history book: Julian of Norwich’s teachings that goes beyond religion and spirituality. It also contains sensible advice on how to live in light during this unpredictable times. If you’re into feminist history books or lives about female authors, this one is definitely for you!
