It is as if we have finally found the lost autobiography of one of the medieval world's most important women. The independent-minded quarterly magazine that combines good looks, good writing and a personal approach.

The 14th revelation of the parable of the Lord and Servant is the most intriguing and I think its reinterpretation of the Fall is completely brilliant. It meant I knew the text really well; I was secure in my understanding that there was an ecological dimension and that her method is porosity. Battling grief, plague, the church and societal expectations, and compelled by her powerful visions, Julian finds a way to live a life of freedom - as an anchoress, bricked up in a small room on the side of a church.It carries a universal message, a system of belief and of living, that is based on the premise of a loving God, and that is in essence optimistic.

The sharp green new leaves of the birches shimmering in the light, the intoxicating smell of the may, its frothy blossom bud-bursting on the blackthorn, the new ferns unfolding, the springy grass under the horses’ hoofs, this twisted tree trunk and the ivy that clings to it, the rich fresh green that is emerging everywhere. The tale culminates in Julian succeeding in completion of her chapters on the 14th Revelation: the Lord and the Servant – the latter not sinning by intent, but rushing to obey and accidentally falling; pain is love – God is always merciful if He (or, perhaps, She) receives prayers. Claire Gilbert inhabits Julian of Norwich in the way that Hilary Mantel immersed herself in Cromwell. Battling grief, plague, the church and societal expectations, and compelled by her powerful visions, Julian finds a way to live a life of freedom – as an anchoress, bricked up in a small room on the side of a church.Even more remarkably, she has plausibly drawn the inner prayer-life, the self-doubt, the loneliness and the quiet faith of this great genius. Slightly Foxed introduces its readers to books that are no longer new and fashionable but have lasting appeal.
