Blessed Julian of Norwich

Blessed Julian of NorwichAlso known as

  • Juliana of Norwich
  • Dame Julian
  • Mother Julian



Almost nothing is known of her early life; we don’t even know if she was from Norwich or chose to move there, and we’re not certain her name was Julian before she became an anchoress near the church of Saint Julian. Recluse under the direction of Benedictines in Norwich, England. Mystic, visionary, and writer. Her book, Revelations of Divine Love, which contains sixteen revelations she received while in an ecstatic trance, is still in print. She meditated on, spoke on, and wrote on the power of love of evil, Christ’s Passion, and the nature of the Trinity. In her early 60s she shut herself in complete seclusion at Conisford, Norwich, and never left again.

  • never formally beatified, but considered a “blessed” due to popular devotion


All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well. – Julian of Norwich
