  • Title: Contexts for Teaching Julian of Norwich [The author identifies difficulties which Julian poses for students who have no knowledge of the Middle Ages. Glasscoe identifies passages and themes, including the Trinity and the authority conveyed by visions, that work well with beginning students. She also identifies some related texts including the Middle English version of "Stabat Mater" that explore themes similar to those of Julian's texts. The Appendix presents "Stond wel moder, under rode," a portion of the Middle English "Stabat Mater." Title note supplied by Feminae.].
