Author(s): McAVOY, Jane
Journal: Studies in Spirituality
Volume: 13 Date: 2003
This article outlines the theology of atonement found in Julian of Norwich’s writing Showings and suggests it has fresh insight for contemporary reflection on the meaning of salvation and satisfaction. Julian teaches us how to think anew about atonement as the process of being satisfied of God’s love for us, which means that we are saved from, not for, sacrifice.
