About this title


Hildegard of Bingen is everyone's secret passion these days. Here is a tumultuous year in the life of the great twelfth-century Benedictine abbess, mystic, composer, healer, writer, and advocate of women's full participation in the life of the spirit. Considered a saint in Germany, Hildegard left us three books of her visions in which she often saw the creation as a living, pulsing being, 77 liturgical songs, the first morality play, a book on the healing arts, a catalog of the flora of her native Rhineland, and a wealth of correspondence with monarchs, several popes, and clergy at all levels of society. In conveying the full breadth of Hildegard's inner and outer experience, Barbara Lachman has created a document that rings with truth about this singular woman and her world. Rarely does a literary work succeed as well in letting readers see the world through such illuminated eyes.

From the Back Cover:

"A dazzling work of historical imagination. With her rich knowledge of liturgical music, steeped in the subtle rhythms of the church year, Barbara Lachman has a deep understanding of the monastic life as Hildegard lived it. In lyrical, uncannily authentic prose, she conveys the intrepid seer's earthy pragmatism as well as her soaring Godward elan and her shrewd observations of the world around her."

Barbara Newman, author of Sister of Wisdom: St. Hildegard's Theology of tile Feminine
