🎧 Julian of Norwich
🎧 Gone Medieval • 28m
The writings of Julian of Norwich are the earliest surviving English language works by a woman and the only surviving English language works by an anchoress. But her life - particularly prior to taking on her role at Saint Julian's Church in Norwich - is shrouded in mystery and it has been widely debated.

This episode was edited by Joseph Knight and produced by Rob Weinberg.
