The renowned author Eivor Martinus will speak (in English) about her recent book I Skuggan av ett Helgon explores the role Swedish Saint Birgitta’s (c 1303 – 1373) daughter Katarina (c. 1332 – 1381) played in her life and how she was instrumental in the foundation of the Bridgettine convent. Without her, St. Birgitta would probably not have been canonized.
