Synopsis

In the light of their thirteen years of work on the critical edition of Showings, Colledge and Walsh give us this first modern English rendering from their critical text.

Excerpt

It is not inappropriate to open a series on Western spirituality with the works of Julian of Norwich.She wrote about the central problems of the spiritual life, particularly those related to the encounter between the soul and God.Her writings are now considered to have universal and permanent value. As a woman, she represents the feminine teacher and feminine insight that are less rare in the Western Christian tradition than many of our contemporaries might think.Her teaching is timeless, meeting some of the urgent needs of those seeking God in our age and answering many of the crucial problems of spiritual development and contemplative consciousness.

In their introduction the editors have, in admirable fashion, provided the reader with information on Julian's life, the history of her writings and the content of her teaching.What we propose to do in this preface is to situate her in a tradition and to suggest her relevance to our time.
