Show Summary Details

Preview

This is the second volume of the translation of the Revelations of St. Birgitta of Sweden. It contains Book IV and Book V, the so-called Liber Quaestionum (The Book of Questions). Book IV includes some of the saint's most influential visions, especially those on the subject of the papacy, purgatory, and the Hundred Years' War. Book V 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 humans; and it ranges over a number of theological issues, such as the created order of the world, justice, Christology, and the Incarnation.
