Librivox recording of Revelations of Divine Love, by Julian of Norwich, translated by Grace Warrack.
Revelations of Divine Love is based on 16 visions Julian had about the Passion of Christ and events surrounding the Crucifixion. It reveals the depth of her understanding and devotion. Noted for their mystical depth and literary elegance.
Julian of Norwich is one of the most famous Christian mystics, and her work, Revelations of Divine Love. The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. This book has clearly been well maintained and looked after thus far.
Julian lived as an anchoress in Norwich, and after recovering from a serious illness she described the visions that had come to her during her suffering. She conceived of a loving and compassionate God, merciful and forgiving, and believed in our ability to reach self-knowledge through sin. She wrote of God as our mother, and embraced strikingly independent theological opinions. This new translation conveys the poise and serenity of Julian's prose style to the modern reader. It includes both the short and long texts, written twenty years apart, through which Julian developed her ideas.

Julian received sixteen different mystical revelations; in this splendid work, she describes and reflects upon those revelations. Having received these revelations at a time of great pain for herself, as she lay ill, she focuses on the mysteries of Christianity, in particular, the vast love of God and the existence of evil. She describes the "motherhood" of God, depicting how God suffers with his creation as it experiences great and multifaceted evil.
