Abstract:

Hildegard von Bingen lived in Germany's Rhineland valley during most of the twelfth century (1098-1179). Besides being the abbess of a large and prosperous Benedictine abbey, she was a prominent writer, preacher, healer, poet, and composer who wrote nine books on theology, medicine, science, and physiology. Hildegard has been called the first medieval woman to reflect on and write about women. At the age of forty-two, HIldegard began to describe the mystical visions that she had experienced throughout her life, and in so doing she shared her theology with the world. As Matthew Fox has said, "If Hildegard had been a man, she would be well known as one of the greatest artists and intellectuals the world has ever seen."
