Abstract [en]

In spite of her long stay in Italy, Saint Birgitta of Sweden always regarded Sweden as her homeland and wanted to be buried in Vadstena monastery, then under construction. Members of the Bridgettine circle in Rome carried her mortal remains from Italy to Sweden, leaving Rome in December, 1373 and arriving in Vadstena in July, 1374. According to a contemporary miracle tale, as the party crossed the Baltic doubts emerged regarding which port to anchor in as they learned of war raging in Sweden. This article contributes to an ongoing scholarly discussion concerning the possibilities of identifying this port. The final part of the article discusses which saint is meant by “Saint Brita” cited as patron saint of a chapel at Sikavarp port on Öland in a sixteenth-century source.
