Item-107:  Julian of Norwich, William Meninger (2-disc DVD Set)

Length:  158 mins.



Julian of Norwich has been called by Thomas Merton "the greatest English theologian". In her "Revelations of Divine Love", written in the 14th century Julian speaks to a 21st-century audience. She speaks of the feminine in God, the existence of hell, the wrath of God, the Trinity and many other aspects of the Christian faith in a way that, 600 years later, is still on the cutting edge of Christian development.

Fr Meninger's talk was recorded during a conference on October 3, 2015 at St Monica Catholic Church, Dallas, Texas.
