Every so often there lives among us someone who seems to be able to reach into a river of knowledge that is somewhere beyond our normal experience. During the twelfth century, at a time when heretics and witches were burned at the stake, Hildegard of Bingen was such a person. She wrote prolifically, publicly preached monastic reform, founded two nunneries, and was embroiled in the politics surrounding popes and anti-popes. Her writings elucidate the life of medieval women and are a striking example of a unique form of Christian spirituality. This book includes selections from Scivias, her major religious work, that detail amazing visions that came to her and the spiritual truths she found buried within their beautiful mystery.
