Oxford World's Classics

  • Barry Windeatt's sensitive translation reflects and conveys to a modern reader the poise and serenity of Julian's prose style.
  • Julian's optimistic theology speaks of a loving and merciful God and of God as our mother, and her beliefs are of particular interest in relation to the position of women and the church.
  • Includes both the short and long texts, written some twenty years apart, and which together comprise an account of Julian's divine revelations and a more extended theological discussion.
  • The comprehensive Introduction explores what is most distinctive and original in Julian's writing and its reception since medieval times.
  • Includes helpful notes, a select bibliography, a list of revelations,Margery Kempe's account of her meeting with Julian, and index.
