Julian’s Literary Legacy is a study of A Vision Showed to a Devout Woman from the inside out. Julian’s writing is systematically studied by Fr Luke Penkett, Librarian and Archivist at the Julian Centre, drawing attention to her linguistic brilliance and clarifying complicated passages with greater comprehension for twenty-first-century readers in mind. The ways in which Julian’s literary style and her use of earlier and contemporary material are seen to illuminate each other, offering new and previously under-studied aspects without which little new research along well-worn paths is feasible. The Middle English words – and their use – are given their fullness of meaning, heightened by her use of rhetoric, allowing their potential richness to come to the surface, opening up possibilities for Julian’s readers to be increasingly aware of God’s goodness and the fact that they are loved for who they are.
