An Explorer's Guide to
Julian of Norwich

by Veronica Mary Rolf 

"All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well."

Julian of Norwich's Revelations of Divine Love is truly an amazing work: an example of Christian mysticism, a unique contribution to Christian theology, the first book in English known to have been written by a woman.

But it can also be a daunting work. Veronica Mary Rolf, who has been studying Julian's text for decades, serves as a guide for readers willing to take up and read Revelations of Divine Love by setting it in its fourteenth-century context and illuminating our understanding of this enduring work and its claim that "all shall be well."

Rolf not only sets Julian's life and text in their fourteenth-century context, but she also sheds light on each of Julian's sixteen revelations. She then digs deeper into Julian's theological themes, including her innovative mystical theology of the "motherhood of God" and offers a chapter on developing a retreat based on Julian's work.  Throughout, Rolf takes a deeply contemplative approach to Julian, illuminating our understanding of this extraordinary woman, her enduring work, and the revelation that "all shall be well."

"The grand and optimistic vision of Lady Julian is fully presented and profoundly supported in this excellent guide by Veronica Mary Rolf. I have been fed for many years by Julian, but this is a new and generous feeding. It can serve as a first-time introduction to this marvelous mystic or a fifth-time deeper journey."

Richard Rohr, Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico

"Rolf plumbs Julian's spiritual audacity in this must-read for those interested in medieval Christianity and literature."
