St Julian's church in Norwich
St Julian's church in Norwich
St Julian's church has an international reputation because of Dame Julian of Norwich, who chose to live here in the later 14th century. But despite common belief, the church is not dedicated to her but to St Julian, Bishop of Le Mans. After recovering from an illness, Dame Julian became an anchoress at the church and her musings, titled ‘The Revelations of Divine Love’, are the first known book to be written in English by a woman. The church as we see it today dates almost entirely from 1953, when it was rebuilt after having been hit by a bomb in 1942. It is believed that the church stood on this site since Anglo-Saxon times and a number of circular windows dating from this time were revealed during rebuilding. Similar windows were also found in the south wall of the chancel. The round tower > Link - it is one of four found at Norwich churches - collapsed due to the bombing and was only partially rebuilt. The baptismal font > Link dates from the 14th century and came from All Saints' church. It has unusual carvings depicting the 12 apostles around the bowl and saints around the stem. The reredos > Link - it was made in Oberammergau, Bavaria, survived the bomb and was placed here in 1931. The Norman doorway > Link to Mother Julian's cell > Link was brought here from St Michael-at-Thorn, a nearby church which was destroyed on the same night as the bomb hit St Julians and was never rebuilt. The two stained glass windows > Link - Link are modern and were made by the firm of King of Norwich. For more detailed information read: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
