This chapter presents a modern English translation of Book I of the Revelationes of St. Birgitta of Sweden. The Book contains revelations that were all received and recorded in Sweden during the earliest period of Birgitta's calling, between 1344 and 1349. The collection may have been assembled initially by Master Mathias of Linköping, who submitted it along with other texts dating from the same period to a commission that was convened to verify its authenticity.
