religious habit

name Williams_p73 thumb left St. Bridget in the religious habit (File:St Brigitta 1476.jpeg) and the crown of a Bridgettine nun, in a 1476 breviary of the form of the Divine Office unique to her Order As a child, she had already believed herself to have visions; these now became more frequent, and her records of these ''"Revelationes coelestes"'' ("Celestial revelations") which were translated into Latin by Matthias, canon of Linköping, and by her confessor, Peter, prior of Alvastra, obtained a great vogue during the Middle Ages. Her visions of the Nativity of Jesus had a great influence on depictions of the Nativity of Jesus in art. Shortly before her death, she described a vision which included the infant Jesus as lying on the ground, and emitting light himself, and describes the Virgin as blond-haired; many depictions followed this and reduced other light sources in the scene to emphasize this effect, and the Nativity remained very commonly treated with chiaroscuro through to the Baroque. Other details often seen such as a single candle "attached to the wall," and the presence of God the Father above, also come from Bridget's vision: ...the Virgin knelt down with great veneration in an attitude of prayer, and her back was turned to the manger.... And while she was standing thus in prayer, I saw the child in her womb move and suddenly in a moment she gave birth to her son, from whom radiated such an ineffable light and splendour, that the sun was not comparable to it, nor did the candle that St. Joseph had put there, give any light at all, the divine light totally annihilating the material light of the candle.... I saw the glorious infant lying on the ground naked and shining. His body was pure from any kind of soil and impurity. Then I heard also the singing of the angels, which was of miraculous sweetness and great beauty... Schiller and Seligman, p. 78 After this the Virgin kneels to pray to her child, to be joined by St. Joseph, and this (technically known as the ''Adoration of the Child'') becomes one of the commonest depictions in the fifteenth century, largely replacing the reclining Virgin in the West. Versions of this depiction occur as early as 1300, well before Bridget's vision, and have a Franciscan origin, by which she may have been influenced, as she was a member of the Franciscan Order. Schiller and Seligman, pp. 76–78 Biofuels research The King attended the Sweden-Michigan Clean Energy Summit at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Dearborn, Michigan, on 26 September 2008, at the start of a two-day visit to Michigan. He also traveled to Kettering University in Flint, Michigan, for the ceremonial groundbreaking for a biogas plant that will be, when completed, similar to a biogas plant in Linköping, Sweden. On the second day of his visit he toured the test tracks of the Ford Motor Company and General Motors Corporation, then owners of Volvo (Volvo Cars) and Saab (Saab Automobile) respectively. ''Detroit Free Press'', 27 September 2008. Östergötland County has a population of 429 852 (March 31, 2011) and the capital and biggest city is Linköping. Linköping and neighbouring twin city Norrköping together form one of Sweden's biggest metropolitan areas; The Linköping-Norrköping Corridor is therefore often referred to as ''The Fourth Metropolitan Region'' of Sweden, the other three being Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. 18th century Little is known of the early history of Staffa, although the Swiss (Switzerland) town of Stäfa on Lake Zurich was named after the island by a monk from nearby Iona. Originally part of the Ulva estate of the MacQuarries (Clan MacQuarrie) until 1777, it was brought to the English-speaking world's attention after a visit by Sir Joseph Banks in August 1772. ''En route'' to Iceland in the company of the painter Johann Zoffany, the Bishop of Linköping, and a Dr. Solander, Banks, (later a president of the Royal Society) was entertained by Maclean of Drummen, on the Isle of Mull. Hearing about Staffa he resolved to visit and set out from Tobermory (Tobermory, Mull) the next day. The winds were light and they did not arrive until darkness had fallen. Bray (1996) pp 89–90. Bray (1996) p 89 suggests that Banks' companion was a Bishop of Iceland, but this seems unlikely as Cooper (1979) provides him with a name and a bishopric - see note below.
