Product Description

Brigid was born in Ireland around the year 450. Her father, a nobleman, rejected her and her mother, who was a Christian slave. Brigid was good friends with Saint Patrick. She founded several convents and even a school of art that specialized in illuminated manuscripts. Legend says that when Brigid passed, her nuns kept a fire lit for centuries. It is a springtime tradition in Ireland to create small woven crosses, called Brigid's crosses.
