Synopsis: Hildegard of Bingen-theologian, mystic, poet, and musician-left an enormous legacy of spiritual insights that have extraordinary relevance in today's world. Even her music hits the top of classical music charts. Why is her influence so enduring?
Hildegard's twelfth-century teachings, founded on the Benedictine Rule, bring with them a wholistic sense that still speaks to today's spiritual seekers. Her ideas on the interdependence of male and female, health and ecology, the arts and sciences, were centuries ahead of their time and assure us that God's "greening" or life-giving power courses through all of life, no matter how bleak the outlook might seem.
This introduction to her life and thought helps to bring Hildegard's rich outlook to bear on today's world. Practical spiritual exercises at the end of each chapter make this suitable for parish study or individual use.
About the Author: June Boyce-Tillman founded the international Hildegard network. She is a composer whose work has been performed in numerous cathedrals, as well as an author. She is Reader in Music at King Alfred's College, Winchester, England.
