Summary
For centuries readers have comfortably accepted Julian of Norwich as simply a mystic. In this astute book, Denys Turner offers a new interpretation of Julian and the significance of her work. Turner argues that this fourteenth-century thinker's sophisticated approach to theological questions places her legitimately within the pantheon of other great medieval theologians, including Thomas Aquinas, Bernard of Clairvaux, and Bonaventure. Julian wrote but one work in two versions, a Short Text recording the series of visions of Jesus Christ she experienced while suffering a near-fatal illness, and a much expanded Long Text exploring the theological meaning of the ""showings"" some twenty years later. Turner addresses the apparent conflict between the two sources of Julians theology: on the one hand, her personal revelation of Gods omnipotent love, and on the other, the Churchs teachings on and her own witnessing of evil in the world that deserves punishment, even eternal punishment. Offering a fresh and elegant account of Julians response to this conflict;one that reveals its nuances, systematic character, and originalitythis book marks a new stage in the century-long rediscovery of one of the English languages greatest theological thinkers
