9780415185516: Hildegard of Bingen: A Visionary Life

Drawing on contemporary sources, the text unfolds Hildegard's life from the time of her entrance into an anchoress's cell--where a woman would remain in pious isolation--to her death as a famed visionary and writer, abbess and confidante of popes and kings, more than seventy years later. Against this background the author explores Hildegard's vast creative work, encompassing theology, medicine, natural history, poetry, and music.

About the Author:

Sabina Flanagan is Visiting Research Fellow in History at the University of Adelaide

From Library Journal:

Hildegard was a unique and remarkable woman of the 12th century who began the austere life of a religious at the age of eight. In light of the fact that she surmounted the typical restraints and low esteem in which women were held in the Middle Ages, her accomplishments were prodigious. That she wrote at all was exceptional. Her interests were both mystical and intellectual, including natural history, medicine, and science. Her musical works are performed even today. She is best known, though, for three lengthy theological works--discussed in some detail here--that came about from her visionary experiences. Just as Hildegard "sought to understand the world in all its aspects, natural, human and divine," this biography approaches her life from a scholarly viewpoint, seeking to interpret her visionary knowledge from a modern perspective. It is the first major work to do so.
