Bridget (Brigid, Birgitta) [1303-1373] was a noblewoman married to a Swedish prince. Widowed, she founded a monastery and an order of women (Order of the Most Holy Redeemer) known as the “Bridgettines.” She wrote down her visions and revelations. She died in Rome on her return from Jerusalem. She is shown in the habit of her order, with her pilgrim’s staff holding a heart with a cross and kicking aside her crown. She is the patron of Sweden. Her feast is July 23.
