Unlike other brief summaries of Julians life and times, this book goes in-depth to uncover the political, cultural, social, and religious milieu that formed and deeply influenced her development as a woman and a mystic. Additionally, unlike other textual companions to Julians work that provide only short explanations of Middle English words, or merely footnote theological terms, this work gives the reader a detailed analysis of her writings, illuminating her ground-breaking mystical theology with extensive scholarship.

Throughout, the book creates a strong dramatic arc for Julians Revelations that interweaves her personal sufferings and burning questions with her visionary experiences, producing a compelling spiritual biography.
