    The novel tells the story of Roman Emperor Julian who during his reign (–) was trying to restore the cult of Olympian gods in Rome, resisting the upcoming Christianity. Christianity "in its highest manifestations is presented in the novel as a cult of an absolute virtue, unattainable on Earth which is in denial of all things Earthly," according to scholar : Dmitry Merezhkovsky.   Julian was an extraordinary woman—most likely a wife and mother; probably a daughter or wife of a wool merchant and, of course, the first woman to write any book in English.

    Later, Julian speaks of the tender hands of God as our Mother. I have here used a painting by the abused woman painter, Artemisa Gentileschi, of the Virgin and Child. The manuscript has drawings of hands in the margin pointing to important parts of the text. The Mother of the Gods was often seen as a dualistic figure: ancestral and foreign, aristocratic and disreputable, nurturing and dangerous. Borgeaud's challenging and nuanced portrait opens new windows on the ancient world's sophisticated religious beliefs and shifting cultural identities.

    I read this book this month because, well, I was living in my mother’s house after her death. Originally published in , this was one of my favourite books when I was a teenager in the sixties. In pre-internet days, books were harder to find, even though I was enjoying the adult library lending privilege of six books at a time/5. A Book of Showings by Julian of Norwich examines many of the philosophical aspects of the Christian doctrine, as well as symbolism from the Bible. One such symbol is the duality of good and evil.

Julian believed that the mother’s role was the most vital of all on earth.
