St. Birgitta of Sweden (1303-1373, canonized 1391) was one of the most charismatic & influential female visionaries of the later Middle Ages. Altogether, she received some 700 revelations, dealing with subjects ranging from meditations on the human condition
, domestic affairs in Sweden, & ecclesiastical matters in Rome, to revelations in praise of the Incarnation & devotion to the Virgin. Her Revelations , collected & ordered by her confessors, circulated widely throughout Europe & long after her death. Many eminent individuals, including Cardinal Juan Torquemada, Jean Gerson, & Martin Luther, read & commented on her writings, which influenced the spiritual lives of countless individuals. Birgitta was also the founder of a new monastic order, which still exists today. She is the patron saint of Sweden, & in 2000 was declared (with Catherine of Siena & Edith Stein) co-patroness of Europe. Birgitta's Revelations present her as a comm&ing & dauntless visionary who develops a contemplative mysticism that is always interwoven with social engagement & a commitment to the salvation of the world. Their varied style is dominated by frequent juxtapositions of memorable images & allegories that illustrate her fierce & fertile imagination, her sharp powers of observation & underst&ing, & her passionate & receptive storytelling powers. This is the first of four projected volumes offering the first complete translation of the Revelations into English since the Middle Ages. This volume, which covers Books I-III of the Revelations , contains some of her earliest visions, dating from the 1340s. Book I addresses some of the major themes of her spirituality, & Books II & III contain a sustained critique of the classes of knights & bishops. The editors provide an extensive introduction outlining the major characteristics of Birgitta's spirituality, her life & work, her style & use of sources, & the main features of her theology.
