Julian of Norwich: A very brief history

Winter Weekend 2016, 

Julian of Norwich was the subject of medievalist and TV historian Janina Ramirez’s latest BBC 4 documentary (July 2016): In Search of the Lost Manuscript: Julian of Norwich. Now the focus of her latest book, Janina takes us further into the history of the Mother of English literature, discussing what we know about Julian and why she deserves to be seen as the female Chaucer or Thomas More.
