This graduate paper, written for my Christology course (DOCT410-001), focuses on feminist christology and Julian of Norwich. Realizing that Catholicism places emphasis on Tradition as well as Scripture, this paper maintains a threefold purpose. First, to briefly discuss and outline the goals of feminist christology, then to examine the life of Julian of Norwich, especially through her book, Revelations of Divine Love, a work which exposes the richness of one woman's experience, while at the same time providing an inclusive framework for discussion about who Jesus is. The third and final section addresses how feminist theologians might benefit from and utilize Julian's theological understandings in order to validate and unearth women's experience.
