One-woman Drama Celebrates Julian of Norwich
Actress and clergywoman Linda Loving will present the one-woman drama “Julian” about the life of medieval mystic Julian of Norwich on Monday, October 5, at 7 p.m. in the Art and Communication Center at Trinity Christian College. This is the first event in the College’s annual WorldView series for film, word, and music.
Although little is known of Julian, the visions she experienced during a serious illness in 1373 led her to eventually write Revelations of Divine Love (or Showings), which is considered a remarkable account of medieval religious experience. Devotionals, compositions, and works of fiction have been based on her writing.
Julian is the first-known English woman whose written work survives. In the midst of great turmoil, including the Black Death and the Peasants’ Revolt, Julian spoke words of comfort, of hope, of forgiveness, and of revelation. She speaks to today as well.
The event is free and open to the public. Upcoming WorldView events include:
- Paul Vallas—October 12—former CEO of Chicago Public Schools
- Martin Marty—October 19—prominent interpreter of religion and culture
- Bella Voce—October 26—Chicago a cappella group
