This volume contains a broad review of recent scholarship on Saint Birgitta and the Birgittine Order. The twenty-three papers were originally presented at an international conference at Dartington Hall, Devon, in July 2015. The theme of the conference, Continuity and Change, reflects the history of the order, which over its more than six centuries of existence has seen many changes: periods of growth and decline, expansion and retrenchment, patronage and persecution. Are there any constants, something intangibly, indefinably Birgittine? Is Birgittine identity about adherence to an essence or ideal, or something that is worked out in practice? The interdisciplinary conference gathered scholars specializing in various fields, for instance Art History, Literature, Musicology, Philology and Archaeology.This volume contains a broad review of recent scholarship on Saint Birgitta and the Birgittine Order.
