To celebrate the 650th anniversary of Julian of Norwich's visionary 'Shewings', here is an anthology of new poems for Mother Julian, medieval mystic, anchoress, and the first woman to write a book in English.
The launch of this book recorded and is available here.
Lyrical, prayerful, vivid and insightful, these poems offer a poetic testament to Julian's enduring legacy of prayer and confidence in a merciful God who assured her that 'All Shall Be Well, and All Shall Be Well, and All Manner of Thing Shall Be Well.'
