About the book:

Julian of Norwich is among the most intriguing religious visionaries in Christian history.

Carefully edited for the undergraduate reader, this Norton Critical Edition includes an informed introduction, focusing on Julians theology and preparing students to understand the complex, controversial themes of the text, particularly Julians solution to the problem of evil in Revelation XIII and XIV. Paragraph divisions have been organized to emphasize the thematic units of each chapter, and the sentences have been punctuated for clarity.

The text included is a Middle English edition, based on the Paris manuscript (15801650) of the long text, with language akin to Chaucers and therefore more accessible than other Middle English editions.

"Contexts" includes contemporary texts that help students better understand Julians originality, including selections from works by Margery Kempe, Augustine, Aelred of Rievaulx, and Walter Hilton.

"Criticism" brings together interpretations that address the themes and style of the Showings by Sandra McEntire, Lynn Staley, B. A. Windeatt, and David Aers, among others.

A Selected Bibliography is also included.
