Julian was an anchoress; that is, a woman who chose a life of solitude and prayer by living in a small one or two room dwelling adjoining a church, her name coming from the Church of St. Julian in Norwich, England. A contemporary of Chaucer, Julian lived during the Hundred Years War and survived three outbreaks of the Black Death and the division of the Holy Roman Catholic Church. This play is based on her written work in 1393, Revelations of Divine Love, in which she speaks of God’s love in terms of joy and compassion (a daring likening of divine love to motherly love), revels in the changing seasons and the abundance of beauty in nature.
