The Revelations [of Julian of Norwich] was the first book written in English by a woman. Julian was a fourteenth-century recluse who recounts the subtle and radical insights granted to her through visions of the crucified Christ as she lay on what she believed to be her deathbed. Her subsequent recovery led to twenty more years of reflection and contemplation, and to her writing a detailed account of these mystical experiences.
