I presented an overview of Julian of Norwich’s Showings
along with a brief overview of 14th Century England to a class at Gardner-Webb yesterday.
My Masters degree from Yale included a heavy focus on the writings of Piers Plowman and associated “Lollard” literature, so it was a natural fit for me to present on Julian given her historical and geographical context.
Needless to say, I had a blast putting this together (with the help of BeeDocs):
Here is the presentation itself:
Julian of Norwich
And here is the basic text of the presentation as well:
Julian of Norwich and 14th Century England
Julian’s work really is fascinating (as is the history of 14th Century Europe). I can’t recommend the study of either/both enough!
BTW, I normally use Scribd for these sorts of embeds and uploads of documents, but they’ve been having problems all morning. Frustrating. So, I’m using DocStoc. Let me know if you have a preference between those two.
