This is a reprint. 'She (Hildegard) castigated a pope for his timidity and an emporer for moral blindness. She taught scholars and preached to clergy and laity as no woman before her had ever done.She claimed that now woman rather than man - obviously Hildegard herself - was to do God's work. It is difficult not to see in her visionary experience and activism, as well as her claim for the mission of woman in this male-dominated age, a gesture of protest, the reaction of an intelligent and energetic woman who chafed under the restrainsts imposed on women by the culture in which she lived.'. "Hildegard of Bingden (1098-1179) was an extraordinary woman living in the Rhineland valley during most of the twelve century. Besides being the abbess of a large and prosperous Benedictine abbey, she was a prominent preacher, doctor, scientist, and artist. She also was a poet and composer, writing nine books on theology, medicine, science, and physiology, as well as seventy poems. At the age of forty-two, she began to have visions; these were captured as thirty-six illuminations - twenty-four of which are recorded in this book- and she wrote a text called Scivas (Know The Ways) describing these visions.'If Hildegard had been a man, she would been known as one of the greatest artists and intellectuals the world has ever seen." '. Very Good.
