Julian of Norwich
Revelations of Divine Love1373
The fullness of joy is to behold God in everything. God is the ground, the substance, the teaching, the teacher, the purpose, and the reward for which every soul labors.
Julian’s shorter work, which may have been written not long after Julian’s visions in May 1373, is now known as her Short Text. As with the Long Text, the original manuscript was lost, but a copy was found in 1910, in a collection of contemplative medieval texts bought by the British Museum It was published by Rvd. Dundas Harford in 1911. Later it has been published by Penguin Classics several times.
