Birgitta profeten och uppenbarelsens dynamik

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapter

Abstract

St. Birgitta as prophet in the Old Testament sense: inspired person who acts and speaks on God's behalf to various social classes and individuals, telling her addressees what should be done and avoided, sometimes also the future (hardly the important feature, however). Her universe is totally biblical, something that can be proved through linguistic and narrative correspondences between the Revelations and the Vulgate.
