The Complete Julian of Norwich is the latest volume in Paraclete’s Giants series, which collects the works of major writers in the Christian tradition. This volume contains rich background material on Julian of Norwich, an excellent translation of the long text of Julian’s 14th-century Revelations of Divine Love and extensive and readable notes. John-Julian is an Episcopal priest and monk who in 1985 founded the Episcopal contemplative Order of Julian of Norwich. His interpretation of Julian’s life is perhaps too speculative to be taken as authoritative, but the translation, notes and extensive appendices add greatly to the available literature on Julian for the lay reader.
