A book that amply rewards its readers with a helpful overview of the current state of Julian scholarship as well as a guide to fitting the many fascinating aspects of Julian's writing into a coherent whole. SIXTEENTH CENTURY JOURNAL

The most significant contribution to Julian studies in 2008. YEAR'S WORK IN ENGLISH STUDIES

It is good to have a study that places this so often most decontextualised of English mystics amongst contemporary writings and readers. JOURNAL OF ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY
By honestly summarizing what we do know about Julian, and then providing a range of interesting interpretations of this, the volume is definitely a stimulating introduction to contemporary debates around Julian. [...] The book is an excellent companion [...]. PARERGON

This Companion is most welcome. BULLETIN CODICOLOGIQUE

This collection provides accessible coverage of a range of debates about this popular late medieval figure. Containing important new work and tracing well-known debates about Julian, it will be a useful companion for both teachers and researchers. JOURNAL OF ENGLISH AND GERMANIC PHILOLOGY

Provides a valuable examination of current debates about the facts and assumptions regarding Julian's life and texts. [...] I strongly recommend it as a library purchase for the use of serious researchers as well as teachers introducing their students to Julian. THE MEDIEVAL REVIEW

It is refreshing to be reminded that scholarship is of value for its own sake, and can reveal insights in familiar texts that continue to awaken our attention to what God still seeks to reveal to us. The second half of the collection contains some fascinating observations on interpretation which really begin to dig deep into the genius of Julian and why she holds such attraction for us today.
