John Duncan. St Bride - best thing in the National Gallery of Scotland and used to have a print hanging above my midden (bed). Story is that Bride/Bridget was taken by the angels to the nativity to serve as a handmaiden to Mary. There is a better legend which says that when Jesus was born it was actually twins. The first child was a girl and she was spirited away by the angels to begin the Celtic Church, where women were respected unlike in the patriarchal Church of Rome.
