Abstract [en]

In 1421, the Birgittine monastery of Vadstena in Sweden wrote a letter to Syon Abbey in England with answers to questions raised by the English daughter house. A copy of the letter — preserved in MS A 20 at the National Archives of Sweden — discusses rules on silence and speech, the weekly chapter, gifts, the division of power between the abbess and the confessor general, as well as other matters. The letter also contains a discussion about St Birgitta’s Revelations. The present article contains an edition and translation of the letter, including a short introduction.
