JULIAN OF NORWICH AND THE


ENGLISH NUNS IN EXILE PORTAL


ulian of Norwich's text was treasured and preserved by, first, Brigittine, then, Benedictine nuns, all of whom had to live in exile following the Reformation.

JULIAN IN A NUTSHELL: THE MANUSCRIPTS AND THEIR CONTEXTS

MOTHER JUSTINA OSB

AUGUSTINE BAKER WEBSITE ~



No longer in exile. The English Benedictine nuns who had been of the daughter house to Cambrai in Paris, returned to England with their manuscripts at the French Revolution and came to be at Colwich Abbey
in Staffordshire. Here is Dame Benedict OSB, who looks after these manuscripts, greeting you:


        
 

Their mother house at Cambrai also returned at the French Revolution and is now Stanbrook Abbey in Worcester. Among the manuscripts they lost at the French Revolution was likely Julian's autograph Showing of Love manuscript, written in the Norwich dialect, from which the Sloane manuscripts are copied. So, when Colwich Abbey closed, their nuns came back to the Mother House with their manuscripts and are now at Stanbrook, including Sister Benedicta.

Latest news. The Colwich nuns have now joined the Stanbrook nuns, their manuscripts in boxes there.
