Julian of Norwich : wisdom in a time of pandemic -- and beyond / Matthew Fox.

Fox, Matthew, 1940- (author.). Starr, Mirabai, (writer of foreword.).


Julian of Norwich lived through the dreadful bubonic plague that killed close to 50% of Europeans. Being an anchoress, she 'sheltered in place' and developed a deep wisdom that she shared in her book, Showings, which was the first book in English by a woman. A theologian way ahead of her time, Julian develops a feminist understanding of God as mother at the heart of nature's goodness. Fox shares her teachings in this powerful and timely and inspiring book.
