  • Title: The Notarial Certification in the Canonization Processes in Northern Europe: The Case of Birgitta of Sweden [Following the death of Bridget of Sweden, her associates began gathering materials for her canonization. These materials, including accounts of miracles, were notarized to support their authenticity. With the outbreak of the Great Schism in 1378, Bridget's cause became focused in Rome, not Avignon. Canonization during a schism, however, was suspect, requiring ratification in the 15th century after the reunification of the church. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
