St Bridget's account of her experiences of "celestial revelations" of Christ's life, the Last Judgment, her own "mystical marriage" to Christ, and divine instructions to found the Brigittine Order. Although the 29 woodcut illustrations for this edition traditionally were assigned to Dürer, now all but one of them are believed to be by assistants who contributed finished drawings on the basis of their master’s general sketches. Dürer designed the coat–of–arms of Maximilian I.
