This book presents a complex picture of the life and works of the abbess Hildegard of Bingen. The first composer to sign her musical works, this playwright and author witnessed and shaped the time of the Crusades, the literary minnesang, and political and theological debate. Hildegard of Bingen's contemporaries called her "prophetissa teutonica", honoring her philosophical writings and interpretation of the cosmos. Medievalists still consider her one of the leading mystics, and point to her active spiritual and artistic life in the twelfth century as the finest example of what a woman could achieve.
