Written in a time of plague and persecution, Julian of Norwich's Revelation of Love grapples with the problem of evil and the challenge it presents to those who wish to believe in a loving God. Julian's sixteen revelations about sin and redemption are some of the first theological works written in English. While her reassuring wisdom has gained in popularity over time, her struggles to reconcile her inner questioning with the teachings she had received through the church and through her mystical visions will also ring true to many readers today.

In this new version, Elisabeth Dutton preserves the beauty and ambiguity in the original language, while rendering this classic accessible to modern readers. Dutton's introduction provides essential background information on Julian of Norwich, explores her role as a woman in church, and sheds light on how her ideas relate to modern issues.

Dr. Elisabeth Dutton is senior research fellow at Worcester College, University of Oxford.
