      Hilton and Julian of Norwich, Eckhart and Ruysbroeck, Tauler and Suso, Catherine of Siena and Dante Alighieri. The works of earlier mystics, Bernard, Bonaventura and the Victorines were studied by the spiritual guides of the day; and the teaching and methods of these writers appear in solution in Rolle. Julian of Norwich (c. 8 November – c. ), also called Juliana of Norwich, was an English anchoress and an important Christian mystic and theologian. Her Revelations of Divine Love, written around , is the first book in the English language known to have been written by a is formally commemorated with a feast on 8 May in the Anglican Church, Episcopal Church, and.

      English literature - English literature - The lyric: The lyric was virtually unknown to Old English poets. Poems such as “Deor” and “Wulf and Eadwacer,” which have been called lyrics, are thematically different from those that began to circulate orally in the 12th century and to be written down in great numbers in the 13th; these Old English poems also have a stronger narrative. The best translation from the Middle English of Hilton is that Evelyn Underhill, who writes in her introduction that “no English devotional work has had so wide and enduring an influence” as the Scale, an influence (she notes) that lasted well into the Prayer Book era. 7. Revelations, by Julian of Norwich.

      The late fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries witnessed a flourishing of mystical texts, by both men and women, including works by Richard Rolle, Julian of Norwich, and Margery Kempe. Rolle wrote in Latin, but his work was translated into Middle English; both Julian’s and Margery’s works appear in Middle English, as does the anonymous.

In a study of Julian's influence and that of Richard Rolle on the Middle English lyric, Mary A. Knowlton concludes, in effect, that she had none. 25 Lateral contamination indicates that both short and long texts were in circulation by when Julian, if we trust the short text's introduction, "yitt ys onn lyfe," but between this date and the mid-seventeenth century, there is silence.

Richard Rolle, who died inis the earliest of a group of five English writers who are generally referred to as the Middle English mystics. These writers span the 14th and 15th centuries: the others in the group are Walter Hilton (d. ), the anonymous author of The Cloud of Unknowing, Julian of Norwich.

Julian of Norwich’s Revelation of Love is a landmark in the history of English spiritual writing. It is significant in intellectual terms: one of the first authored works of vernacular theology, it demonstrates the development of the English language as a medium for religious discussion; as a document of its times it bears witness to the vitality of English lay spirituality in the century.

As always, the canonical ‘Middle English Mystics’ are represented: indeed, there is a ‘full house’ of Richard Rolle, Walter Hilton, the Cloud-author, Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe. The volume begins with Vincent Gillespie’s exploration of light, colour and sight in Julian of Norwich.

Despite its unclear origins, the Cloud is an important and influential work situated alongside the other mystical and contemplative works of the late Middle Ages, such as the work of Richard Rolle, The Revelations of Divine Love or Book of Shewings of Julian of Norwich, the works of Walter Hilton, and The Book of Margery Kempe.

Julian (or Juliana) of Norwich ( – after ), also known as Dame Julian or Mother Julian, was an English anchorite of the Middle wrote the best known surviving book in the English language written by a mystic, Revelations of Divine book is the first written in English.

Richard Rolle, the earlier fourteenth-century mystic, wrote a "Meditations on the Passion" in which the speaker attempts to view the events of Christ's last hours from arrest to entombment as if they were unfolding before his eyes in sequence (English Writings of Richard Rolle, ed.

construct because of their gender. See Watson, “The Middle English Mystics,” Denise N. Baker has argued that there is little evidence to suggest that Julian knew the works of Rolle, Hilton, or the Cloud-author. See Baker, “Julian of Norwich and the Varieties of Middle English Mystical Discourse,” The influence of Richard Rolle and of Julian of Norwich on the Middle English lyrics by Mary Arthur Knowlton (Book) Two revisions of Rolle's English Psalter commentary and the related canticles by Richard Rolle (Book).

Scholars have spent considerable time attempting to characterise Julian of Norwich's relationship to biblical texts. This article will first survey the state of scholarship with respect to Julian and the Bible, defending a minimalist thesis: that Julian thinks theologically in the rhythms of scripture, rendering suggestions that she haphazardly borrows from biblical language demonstrably false.

The five "Middle English Mystics" (Richard Rolle, Walter Hilton, the author of The Cloud of Unknowing, Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe) receive renewed attention, with significant new insights generated by fresh theoretical approaches.
