Most people don't realize that Norwich is also the home of St. Julian of Norwich, the 14th century abbess and brilliant mystic theologian who was the first woman to write a Christian theological treatise in English, called "The Showings". It was almost heretically universalistic, and controversial at the time. I believe "The Showings" was also the first extant book to be written in English on any topic by a woman.
