Simon Parke repeats his talk on Julian Of Norwich .

Julian of Norwich, contemporary of both Chaucer and Langland, was the first woman to write a book in English. Yet remarkably, she disappeared from view for 600 years, before her rediscovery in the 20th century.

Who was she? Why did she pray for a near-death experience and then choose containment in a cell? And how, amid these traumatic times, did she speak with such optimism? Simon talks about this fascinating woman.
