Julian of Norwich, the famous fourteenth-century anchoress, was seriously ill and preparing for death when she received a series of 16 visions of the passion of Christ. As a result of these visions, she dedicated the rest of her life to solitary prayer, and wrote down the content of the visions, which became the first book in English known to have been written by a woman.
The first vision includes her famous meditation on the hazelnut, which for her becomes an image of God’s love because God made it, loves it and keeps it.
