How does this philosophy work? Do you just sit on the ground and pray for the truth to come to you on a platter as if you’re in a State of Some Confusion? Who is the Anchoress anyway? Is there any info about this?
I’d always assumed it was Julian of Norwich, because of the “all shall be well” quote that runs through the place. She also happens to have been an anchoress.
Perhaps it means that, despite all the grueling trials it puts on people, the Bazaar actually likes stories with happy endings?
Quoting myself from a
Sir Frederick Tanah-Chook:
Julian of Norwich, a 14th century English mystic whose contribution to Christian thought has been an enduring influence on the lore of the Neath. I’m far from an expert, but I gather her theology might broadly be described as optimistic, compassionate and poetic. The oft-quoted assurance that all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well, comes to us from Julian, via T.S. Eliot. So, her approach to knowledge would be a school that is based in kindness, forgiveness, in believing that people behave badly only out of ignorance, and that they can be assisted to lead a better life. It’s more about good intentions than strict academic rigour, and if it leads to a little more goodness in the world, then it would consider the effort worthwhile.
