Abstract [en]

The Vadstena Memorial Book tells us about travelling birgittine brothers and sisters when a new monastery was to be established. In their luggage they had books and other things they needed for the daily life at the new place. Some of the Vadstena manuscripts bear witness of these journeys of people, books etc. The contacts with the Norwegian birgittine house seem for example to have inspired to the development of a certain kind of marginal decoration in Vadstena, and the contacts with the Flemish and German sister houses becomes apparent when facing the pasted in wood-prints in the nuns manuscripts. Evident is also that as the sent out nuns taught the sisters at the new convents to write, they also transmitted the textile traditions established in Vadstena.
