Hildegard of Bingen, the visionary, mystic, poet, musician, naturalist, healer and theologian, was one of the most remarkable women of the Middle Ages. Sabina Flanagan's study of Hildegard's life and work places her writings in the context of medieval life and thought, and shows how, in an age when few women wrote more than an occasional letter, Hildegard's writings not only surpassed those of most of her male contemporaries in the range of their subject matter, but also outshone them in visionary beauty and intellectual power.

A fascinating book about Hildegard's extraordinary visionary life and her writings that surpassed those of most of her male contemporaries in breadth, depth and power. With a new preface and updated references to the latest critical material on Hildegard's writings.
