Information on talk

Born of a king and a slave and raised by a druid, Brigid integrates opposites and stands as the sister of all, regardless of class, ethnicity, or religious affiliation. And yet, Brigid shows particular concern and affection for women, including her sisters in religion. This talk centers Brigid’s sisterly solidarity, exploring her female friendships in her medieval Lives, as it also considers her in relationship to Ireland’s other female saints, especially the three who likewise have medieval biographies: Darerca, Íte, and Samthann
