English Mysticism: A Day with Julian of Norwich

  • Course Dates: Sat 1 November 2014, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm

This one-day course will introduce students to the theology and spirituality of the English Mystic Julian of Norwich.

Perhaps England’s first female theologian, students will delve into her idea of the motherhood of God, and how love shapes both her understanding of the Trinity and her commitment to Christ’s humanity.

Julian’s spirituality has become a popular form of contemporary devotion. Reflectively examining these key ideas within her book The Revelations of Divine Love, students will consider why this is and whether or not they think her spirituality still relevant today.

This is a repeat of the course from April 2014.
