Abstract

An introduction to and edition of a previously unpublished legend for the Canonization Day of the Swedish national saint, Birgitta Birgersdotter. The legend exists today in one single manuscript, Uppsala University Library, ms. C 24, written in the second half of the fifteenth century. The legend has three main parts: the first describes the holy life of St Birgitta in the form of two "sermons"; the second part is a very brief account of miracles performed by or through the saint; and the third part describes the process leading to her canonization. The legend as a whole draws on about a dozen identifiable sources and one or more that cannot be identified. From an unknown source come two miracles that appear in part three.
