Corbridge and the Graduate Committee on Research and Creative Work, the University of Colorado, Boulder, for enabling the research travel this book required; the magnificent libraries of Sweden, England, France, Bavaria and Italy and their holdings of Brigittine manuscripts; the Brigittine nuns of Vadstena, Altomünster, Syon, and the Casa di Santa Brigida, Rome; and Margot King for her encouragement and the labour of love that is Peregrina Publishing. On the basis of an acknowledged sanctity and a theocratic equality, she was able to communicate effectively with emperors and popes, kings and bishops, women and men, children and servants. Her life work was the creation of an apocalyptic, sibylline book in eight volumes, the Revelationes, and though her reputation was to be attacked by Jean Gerson, Chancellor of the University of Paris, it was also very ably defended by Thomas Gascoigne, who was Chancellor of the University of Oxford. Gascoigne himself says that the life he compiled of Saint Birgitta was copied at Syon from the books of attestation for her canonisation and written twice, on paper and parchment.
