Review:

Mysticism has a long history in Christianity, and 12th-century Hildegard of Bingen is one of Christianity's most admired mystics. The Book of Divine Works is her record of visions from God. Included are a number of letters and sermons that she wrote to various figureheads of the time, along with 15 songs, complete with lyrics and medieval notation.
