PHildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) was an extraordinary woman living in the Rhineland valley during most of the twelfth century. Besides being the abbess of a large and influential Benedictine abbey, she was a prominent preacher, healer, scientist, and artist. She also was a composer and theologian, writing nine books on theology, medicine, science, and physiology, as well as 70 poems and an opera. At the age of 42, she began to have visions, these were captured as 36 illuminations#151,24 of which are recorded in this book along with her commentaries on them. She also wrote a text describing these visions entitled iScivias/i (Know the Ways), now published as iHildegard of Bingen's Mystical Visions/i. PAuthor Matthew Fox has stated, quot,If Hildegard had been a man, she would be well known as one of the greatest artists and intellectuals the world has ever seen.quot, It is a credit to the power of the women's movement and our times that this towering genius of Western thought is being rediscovered in her full grandeur and autonomy. PVirtually unknown for more than 800 years in Western history, Hildegard was featured as one of the women in Judy Chicago's iDinner Party/i in the early 1980s and published for the first time in English by Bear amp, Company in 1982.
