The focus of this study is Julian of Norwich's A Book of Showings to the Anchoress Julian of Norwich and how she uses her visions of the Virgin Mary in order to become united with Christ. By examining the First, Eighth, and Fourteenth Revelations in depth, this thesis shows how Julian first creates a connection between herself, Mary, and Jesus, and then how Julian melds Jesus and Mary into the figure of Christ as Mother. Because of the links she creates between herself and Mary, Julian thus becomes united with Christ.
