St Julian Church

Julians Alley Between King Street and Rouen Road Norwich view map

Julian of Norwich was the first woman to write a book in English
She wrote it while she was an Anchoress (a hermit)
living in a small cell attached to St Julians Church

On The 8th of May 1373 when she was 30 Julian suffered
a severe illness from which she almost died During that illness
she recieved a series of visions of the passion of christ and the love of God
When she recovered she wrote down what she had been taught perhaps having to learn to
read and write in order to do so

Her book


took her over 20years to complete
and today is regarded a spiritual classic throughout the world

Writer and Mystic 1342- 1429
