Juliana von Norwich

Geburtstag: 8. November 1342
Todesdatum: 1416

Juliana von Norwich, englisch Julian of Norwich , war eine englische Mystikerin.

Sie war wahrscheinlich eine Reklusin bei der Kirche St. Julian in Norwich und erlebte während einer schweren Erkrankung 1373 16 mystische Eröffnungen über das Leben Jesu Christi und die Heilige Dreifaltigkeit. Zwanzig Jahre später berichtete sie davon in ihrem Buch Die Offenbarungen der göttlichen Liebe .

Wichtigste Quelle über ihre Herkunft und ihre Lebensumstände sind die Angaben, die in den Revelations of Divine Love gemacht werden. Ihre Schriften lassen auf fundierte biblische und auch theologische Kenntnisse schließen. Ihre Offenbarungen sind in zwei Fassungen niedergeschrieben worden: Eine kürzere Niederschrift wird gemeinhin früher datiert und enthält noch viele biographische Details und Angaben, während die spätere, zweite Niederschrift, theologisch durchgearbeitet wurde. In dieser zweiten Schrift wird alles auf Gottes Heilswillen gegenüber allen Menschen hin ausgerichtet.

Aus den Offenbarungen stammt auch ihr wohl berühmtester Satz, welcher in den Zitatenschatz nicht nur englischsprachiger Kulturen eingegangen ist:

Zitate Juliana von Norwich

„Highly ought we to rejoice that God dwelleth in our soul, and much more highly ought we to rejoice that our soul dwelleth in God. Our soul is made to be God’s dwelling-place; and the dwelling-place of the soul is God, Which is unmade.“

—  Julian of Norwich
Summations, Chapter 54, And high understanding it is, inwardly to see and know that God, which is our Maker, dwelleth in our soul; and an higher understanding it is, inwardly to see and to know that our soul, that is made, dwelleth in God’s Substance: of which Substance, God, we are that we are. And I saw no difference between God and our Substance: but as it were all God; and yet mine understanding took that our Substance is in God: that is to say, that God is God, and our Substance is a creature in God.

„I have signifying of Three manners of Cheer of our Lord. The first is Cheer of Passion, as He shewed while He was here in this life, dying. Though this Beholding be mournful and troubled, yet it is glad and joyous: for He is God.“

—  Julian of Norwich
The Sixteenth Revelation, Chapter 71, The second manner of Cheer is Ruth and Compassion: and this sheweth He, with sureness of Keeping, to all His lovers that betake them to His mercy. The third is the Blissful Cheer, as it shall be without end: and this was oftenest and longest-continued.

„All dreads other than reverent dread that are proffered to us, though they come under the colour of holiness yet are not so true, and hereby may they be known asunder.“

—  Julian of Norwich
The Sixteenth Revelation, Chapter 74, That dread that maketh us hastily to flee from all that is not good and fall into our Lord’s breast, as the Child into the Mother’s bosom, with all our intent and with all our mind, knowing our feebleness and our great need, knowing His everlasting goodness and His blissful love, only seeking to Him for salvation, cleaving to with sure trust: that dread that bringeth us into this working, it is natural, gracious, good and true. And all that is contrary to this, either it is wrong, or it is mingled with wrong. Then is this the remedy, to know them both and refuse the wrong.

„For He beholdeth us so tenderly that He seeth all our living a penance:“

—  Julian of Norwich
The Sixteenth Revelation, Chapter 81, Context: Marvellous and stately is the place where the Lord dwelleth, and therefore He willeth that we readily answer to His gracious touching, more rejoicing in His whole love than sorrowing in our often fallings. For it is the most worship to Him of anything that we may do, that we live gladly and merrily, for His love, in our penance. For He beholdeth us so tenderly that He seeth all our living a penance: for nature’s longing in us is to Him aye-lasting penance in us : which penance He worketh in us and mercifully He helpeth us to bear it. For His love maketh Him to long; His wisdom and His truth with His rightfulness maketh Him to suffer us here: and in this same manner He willeth to see it in us.

„For sin is so vile and so greatly to be hated that it may be likened to no pain which is not sin. And to me was shewed no harder hell than sin. For a kind soul hath no hell but sin.“

—  Julian of Norwich
The Thirteenth Revelation, Chapter 40, Context: But now if any man or woman because of all this spiritual comfort that is aforesaid, be stirred by folly to say or to think: If this be true, then were it good to sin to have the more meed, — or else to charge the less to sin, — beware of this stirring: for verily if it come it is untrue, and of the enemy of the same true love that teacheth us that we should hate sin only for love. I am sure by mine own feeling, the more that any kind soul seeth this in the courteous love of our Lord God, the lother he is to sin and the more he is ashamed. For if afore us were laid all the pains in Hell and in Purgatory and in Earth — death and other —, and sin, we should rather choose all that pain than sin. For sin is so vile and so greatly to be hated that it may be likened to no pain which is not sin. And to me was shewed no harder hell than sin. For a kind soul hath no hell but sin.

„Our soul is so specially loved of Him that is highest, that it overpasseth the knowing of all creatures: that is to say, there is no creature that is made that may know how much and how sweetly and how tenderly our Maker loveth us.“

—  Julian of Norwich
The First Revelation, Chapter 6, Context: Our soul is so specially loved of Him that is highest, that it overpasseth the knowing of all creatures: that is to say, there is no creature that is made that may know how much and how sweetly and how tenderly our Maker loveth us. And therefore we may with grace and His help stand in spiritual beholding, with everlasting marvel of this high, overpassing, inestimable Love that Almighty God hath to us of His Goodness. And therefore we may ask of our Lover with reverence all that we will. For our natural Will is to have God, and the Good Will of God is to have us; and we may never cease from willing nor from longing till we have Him in fullness of joy: and then may we no more desire.

„I saw that two contrary things should never be together in one place. The most contrary that are, is the highest bliss and the deepest pain.“

—  Julian of Norwich
The Sixteenth Revelation, Chapter 72, Context: I saw that two contrary things should never be together in one place. The most contrary that are, is the highest bliss and the deepest pain. The highest bliss that is, is to have Him in clarity of endless life, Him verily seeing, Him sweetly feeling, all-perfectly having in fulness of joy. And thus was the Blissful Cheer of our Lord shewed in Pity: in which Shewing I saw that sin is most contrary, — so far forth that as long as we be meddling with any part of sin, we shall never see clearly the Blissful Cheer of our Lord. And the more horrible and grievous that our sins be, the deeper are we for that time from this blissful sight. And therefore it seemeth to us oftentimes as we were in peril of death, in a part of hell, for the sorrow and pain that the sin is to us. And thus we are dead for the time from the very sight of our blissful life. But in all this I saw soothfastly that we be not dead in the sight of God, nor He passeth never from us. But He shall never have His full bliss in us till we have our full bliss in Him, verily seeing His fair Blissful Cheer. For we are ordained thereto in nature, and get thereto by grace. Thus I saw how sin is deadly for a short time in the blessed creatures of endless life.

„In this Little Thing I saw three properties. The first is that God made it, the second is that God loveth it, the third, that God keepeth it.“

—  Julian of Norwich
The First Revelation, Chapter 5, Context: In this Little Thing I saw three properties. The first is that God made it, the second is that God loveth it, the third, that God keepeth it. But what is to me verily the Maker, the Keeper, and the Lover, — I cannot tell; for till I am Substantially oned to Him, I may never have full rest nor very bliss: that is to say, till I be so fastened to Him, that there is right nought that is made betwixt my God and me.
