9780195166286: The Revelations of St. Birgitta of Sweden, Volume 4: The Heavenly Emperor's Book to Kings, The Rule, and Minor Works

St. Birgitta of Sweden (1303-1373, canonized 1391) was one of the most charismatic and 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, and ecclesiastical matters in Rome, to revelations in praise of the Incarnation and devotion to the Virgin. Her Revelations, collected and ordered by her confessors, circulated widely throughout Europe and long after her death. Many eminent individuals, including Cardinal Juan Torquemada, Jean Gerson, and Martin Luther, read and 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, and in 2000 was declared (with Catherine of Siena and Edith Stein) co-patroness of Europe.

Birgitta's Revelations present her as a commanding and dauntless visionary who develops a contemplative mysticism that is always interwoven with social engagement and a commitment to the salvation of the world. The varied styles of her revelations are dominated by frequent juxtapositions of memorable images and allegories that illustrate her fierce and fertile imagination, her sharp powers of observation and understanding, and her passionate and receptive storytelling powers.

This fourth and final volume of the translation of the Revelations of St. Birgitta of Sweden, comprises The Heavenly Emperor's Book to Kings, The Rule, and Minor Works. While the complete collection of Birgitta's books--called Liber caelestis--ends with Books VII, the eighth book, also referred to as The Heavenly Emperor's Book to Kings, was added after her death. It was compiled by Alfonso of Jaén, and is prefaced by his own treatise, titled The Hermit's Letter to Kings, which examines the ways in which revelations are tested and proven to be true visions conferred by the Holy Spirit. This volume also contains the Birgittine Rule, the Matins readings intended for the nuns, four prayers, and a collection of scattered revelations that lie on the periphery of the main corpus of texts.

The translation is based on the recently completed critical edition of the Latin text and promises to be the standard English translation of the Revelations for years to come.

About the Author:


Denis Searby is Professor in Classical Languages at the Universities of Stockholm and Uppsala. He has worked on a number of translations and critical editions in Latin and Greek, primarily within the tradition of Greek prose anthologies.

Bridget Morris was formerly Senior Lecturer in Scandinavian Studies at the University of Hull. She is the author of a number of articles and books on St. Birgitta and medieval Swedish literature.

Review:


"Searby and Morris acknowledge a beneficial working partnership that spanned their respective countries of Sweden and England over the past two decades of work (vi). This is shown in the quality of scholarly work and attention to detail that this volume, and series, provides...This book (in fact, the whole series) is recommended with enthusiasm, not only for the careful production by Searby and Morris, but also for the delightful surprises from St. Birgitta that will engage readers."--The Medieval Review
