Handmade Julian of Norwich Statue: Patron of Cats / "All Shall Be Well"

Julian of Norwich, Patron of Cats Julian, born in England in 1342, was an anchoress in the medieval city of Norwich. A medieval anchoress like Julian lived in a cell built into the wall of a church. Julian's function was to pray, to be still, and to give counsel to any who sought her advice. Many medieval anchoresses kept cats as mousers, and a longstanding legend has it that Julian too had a cat in her cell: a stained-glass church window in Norwich shows Julian with her cat.
