Julian of Norwich's Showings synopsis
The first woman to write in English, Julian of Norwich, the 14th-century mystic, inspired generations of Christians with her reflections on Jesus' "motherhood" and her assertion that despite evil, "everything must be fine." In this book, Dennis Becker looked back at Julian not only as an eloquent and profound asset, but also as a dynamic and sophisticated man of great originality. Focusing on the book Julian of the shows, in which the author records a series of discoveries he received during a serious illness in May 1373, Baker presents the first historical assessment of Julian's importance as a writer and thinker.
Julien's experience of vision in the short version of her shows, Julian thought of revealing the two decades for two decades before gaining an understanding that enabled her to complete the long text. Baker first traces the emergence of Julian's conceptual experience of the practice of emotional piety, such as reflections on the life of Christ, and in the arts, a depiction of Christ rather than the triumph of Christ on the cross.
Julian's innovations became clear in the long text. By combining the late medieval theology of salvation with Sufi teachings about the nature of humanity, it leads to the development, optimism, and liberation of the conclusions about the existence of evil in the world, God's attitude toward sinners, and the possibility of universal salvation.
She concludes her theory by comparing the links between the Trinity and humanity in family relationships, emphasizing the role of Jesus as a mother. Julian's strategy for revisions and artists is scrutinized in the final chapter of this book, where Baker explains how this author brings readers to re-represent their struggle to understand the facts.
