"Urban Holmes went on to read Dame Julian's classic book 'Revelations of Divine Love' and discover for himself the rich wisdom of this great mystic just as T.S. Eliot, Thomas Merton, Evelyn Underhill, Herbert O'Driscoll, Fr. Robert Llewellyn and many other have known for so long. In his classic and final book, 'What is Anglicanism ?', Holmes even went so far as to raise up Julian as the 'prototype of Anglican consciousness'. To him, no other mystic more aptly personified the Anglican spiritual sensibility than Dame Julian of Norwich. Who was this wise, holy woman who, as far as we know, was the first woman to write a book in the English language, who voice still speaks to us so compellingly across the chasm of seven centuries ?" (p. 3-4).
