The Revelations of St. Birgitta of Sweden

Volume II

Translated by Denis Searby
Bridget Morris

This is the second of four volumes and it contains Book IV and Book V of the Revelations. Book IV includes some of Birgitta's most influential visions, with topics ranging from the Avignon papacy and purgatory, to the Hundred Years' War. Book V, the Liber Quaestionum (Book of Questions), takes the form of a learned dialogue between Christ and a monk standing on a ladder fixed between heaven and earth. The argument centers on the way in which God's providence is constantly misunderstood and rejected by self-centered human beings.

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.
