Title : Text and Controversy: In Defense of St. Birgitta of Sweden [Early writers in defense of Bridget of Sweden had her canonization in mind. They answered critics and sought official approbation from Bridget's life, order and texts. Miracles and conversions were cited to prove that God chose to work through a woman. They also presented Bridget as an honorary man, stronger than her sex. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
