Julian of Norwich (1343–c. 1416) was an English mystic and anchoress whose book, Revelations of Divine Love, describes a series of visions in which God’s love is revealed to her in terms of forgiveness, joy, compassion, and maternal love. She believed God brought her back from the brink of death. In recent times, the Christian contemplative prayer movement has taken a particular interest in her work.
