"JULIANA, anchoret. She was probably a Benedictine nun of the house at Carrow, near Norwich, but lived for the greater part of her life in an achorage in the churchyard of St. Julian at Norwich. The rectory of St. Julian was impropriated to Carrow, and the anchorage was inhabited by recluses after Juliana's time. Juliana wrote 'XVI Revelations of Divine Love,' a manuscript copy of which is at the British Museum (Sloan 2499)."
