Dr Louise Nelstrop's monograph On Deification and Sacred Eloquence: Richard Rolle and Julian of Norwich was published by Taylor & Francis in October 2019. The book considers the place of deification in the writings of Julian of Norwich and Richard Rolle, two of the fourteenth-century English Mystics. It argues that, as a consequence of a belief in deification, both produce writing that is helpfully viewed as sacred eloquence.
