The Search for the Lost Manuscript: Julian of Norwich – 13 June 2021 – 13/6/2021 – Sunday – BBC Four

Medieval art historian Dr Janina Ramirez tells the incredible story of a book hidden for centuries in the shadows of history, the first book ever written in English by a woman, Julian of Norwich, in 1373.

Revelations of Divine Love dared to present an alternative vision of man’s relationship with God, a theology fundamentally at odds with the church of Julian’s time. The book was suppressed for 500 years. It re-emerged in the 20th century as an iconic text for the women’s movement and was acknowledged as a literary masterpiece.

Janina follows the trail of the lost manuscript, travelling from Norwich to Cambrai in northern France to discover how the book survived and the brave women who championed it.
