Writings of St. Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) on the Holy Spirit Wisdom
Oh children of humanity, why have you corrupted tender Love, who gazes far into my depths and flows forth in works abounding? Because She flows within me, from Her in turn flow the living waters. She resembles a budding branch, for, as a virgin's embraces are most tender because of her integrity, even so Love's embraces are more tender than those of any other. But now She mourns, because audacious men tear her to pieces with their evil grumbling. Hence, She flees from them to that height whence She came, and weeps because Her children, whom She suckled at Her fertile breasts, fall sick and will not be cleansed from the corruption of their flighty minds.

As you may know, Hildegard was a very remarkable woman who lived in the Middle Ages, in the eleventh century, and became famous as a mystic, writer, painter, musician, and church official. She also was keenly interested in observations of the natural world and speculations about natural events. In recent years, she has been rediscovered, and is more famous than ever (as a check of the web sites devoted to her life and work reveals). However, before looking at some specific sections of Hildegard, I'd like to offer a few general comments by way of clarifying what we mean by that phrase "mystical way of knowing," especially in comparison with other ways of knowing about the world, those we have already encountered and others.

Hildegard of Bingen

Woman of Note
Europe: Germany
Hildegard von Bingen, known as Sibyl of the Rhine for her musical compositions and poetry, was a visionary mystic and abbess of the Benedictine cloister of Disibodenberg. Her visions, which she'd experienced since a child, were confirmed by a committee of theologians and officially recorded in the work Scivias. Hildegard also wrote music, lives of saints, treatises on natural history and medicine, and correspondence containing prophecies and allegorical treatises. Though never formally canonized, she is listed as a saint in the Roman Martyrology for the miracles reported during her lifetime and at her tomb. The recent 900th anniversary of her birth generated renewed interest in her music, much of which has been recorded by groups such as The Anonymous 4, Gothic Voices and Sequentia.

Hildegard of Bingen, 1098-1179 : A Visionary Life by Sabina Flanagan Drawing on contemporary sources, the text unfolds Hildegard's life from the time of her entrance into an anchoress's cell to her death as a famed visionary and writer, abbess and confidante of popes and kings, more than seventy years later. Against this background the author explores Hildegard's vast creative work, encompassing theology, medicine, natural history, poetry, and music. This new edition includes: a new preface, additions to the biographical sections which reveal new discoveries about Hildegard's life, updated references to the latest critical material on Hildegard's writings, and a new bibliography and discography. It is the great virtue of Sabina Flanagan's cool, scholarly, and reflective biography that it sets her story so firmly in her own age....A woman of electrifying visionary power, fascinating, often enigmatic and clearly of great presence, she was also a woman with a will and prejudices of her own....It is as such, wrinkles and all, that Sabina Flanagan presents her to us, and we must be grateful for the historical balance of her picture."

Hildegard of Bingen
Hildegard of Bingen ) German abbess monastic leader, mystic , and author. Hildegard was born into a family of knights in the service of the counts of Sponheim, close relatives of the Hohenstaufen emperors. Because Hildegard was a tenth child, at the age of eight Hildegard's parents sent her as a tithe to the church (as was customary in medieval times). Hildegard was put in the care of Jutta, the sister of Count Meinhard of Sponheim. On Jutta's death in Hildegard was chosen superior of the community that had grown up around Jutta at Disibodenberg, and eventually moved the community to a new monastery on the Rupertsberg at Bingen on the Rhine . In her administrative role she corresponded with Popes, Abbot Suger , Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa , and St. Bernard of Clairvaux Hildegard wrote prolifically, and much of her work survives, including accounts of her visions, music, medicine, and letters. From the time she was very young, Hildegard claimed to have visions. Her Scivias ("Know the Way"), the narrative of her visions, was richly decorated under her direction (though not by her hand?transcription assistance was provided by the monk Volmar) with pictures of the visions. Her vivid description of the physical sensations which accompanied her visions have been diagnosed by neurologists (including popular author

Hildegard of Bingen
At a time when few women wrote, Hildegard, known as "Sybil of the Rhine", produced major works of theology and visionary writings. When few women were accorded respect, she was consulted by and advised bishops, popes, and kings. She used the curative powers of natural objects for healing, and wrote treatises about natural history and medicinal uses of plants, animals, trees and stones. She is the first composer whose biography is known. She founded a vibrant convent, where her musical plays were performed. Revival of interest in this extraordinary woman of the middle ages was initiated by musicologists and historians of science and religion. Her story is important to all students of medieval history and culture and an inspirational account of an irresistible spirit and vibrant intellect overcoming social, physical, cultural, gender barriers to achieve timeless transcendence/ In 1141, Hildegard had a vision that changed the course of her life. A vision of God gave her instant understanding of the meaning of the religious texts, and commanded her to write down everything she would observe in her visions. " And it came to pass ... when I was 42 years and 7 months old, that the heavens were opened and a blinding light of exceptional brilliance flowed through my entire brain. And so it kindled my whole heart and breast like a flame, not burning but warming... and suddenly I understood of the meaning of expositions of the books . . .

    In Hildegard's time, monastic life in no way implied a life of poverty. Wealthy families often gave the convents the land, goods, and money which would have formed their daughter's dowry had she instead choosen to marry. Even in the convents, including the convents where Hildegard lived, learned, and eventually ruled, the social classes were kept apart with the daughters of the wealthy being an educated, priviledged class and the daughters of the poor doing the physical labor. Similarily, even in the century before Hildegard was born, church positions from the archbishop on down were regularly bought by and sold to the highest bidder regardless of the purchaser's character or spiritual qualifications. Simony was rife for the church offices were positions of wealth, power, and influence. Secular lords jealously guarded their rights to appoint their subjects to eccleasistical offices while eccleastical "barons" jealously guarded their rights to sell the offices positions under their control. The stage was set for brutal battles between secular and eccleasistical authorities for control of church offices. Although Gregory VII who became Pope in 1073 began to reform the system, the struggles between Pope and Emperor continued theoughout Hildegard's lifetime. The Manichean heresy, under the name of Catharism, made a resurgence during this time. It's popularily seemed to be related more to it's opposition to the corruption of the established church than to the Manichean beliefs themselves. The Cathars believed that the universe was divided between two all-powerful forces, one good and one evil. Further, since the material world was created by the Evil One, it must be completely rejected."

Variations on the Name of Hildegard of Bingen
The 12 th -century German abbess Hildegard of Bingen (German "von Bingen") is renowned as an herbalist, a correspondent with kings, a mystic visionary, a poet, a playwright, and a brilliantly original composer. Recordings of her music abound, including a Euro-disco version of her chants; new-age seekers earnestly prescribe her herbal remedies, and the textbook I used for teaching World Civilizations considers her important enough as a poet to discuss her at some length without ever mentioning that she was also a composer. (She is also often called an artist, but the paintings associated with her were evidently executed by nuns under her supervision.) Although the frenzy surrounding Hildegard threatens to rival the Virginia Woolf industry in fervor if not in scale, her existence comes as news to most undergraduates, who seem to have great difficulty in remembering her name on tests. Herewith is a list of some of the many variations on the spelling of her name I have encountered in student papers and examinations.

We will look at the illuminations of Hildegard of Bingen within their cultural and theological context. In this unit, we will look at Hildegard's use of color and shape to convey a feminine vision of the Divine.
Background: Who was Hildegard of Bingen?
Hildegard was an abbess, prophetess, poet, healer, theologian, and musician. She was born in one of the most innovative and creative centuries of the Middle Ages, and is herself symbolic of the apex of medieval culture. One of the most educated, prolific women of all time, she preached against heresy and corruption, wrote massive works on medicine and visionary theology, was a prolific and highly original composer, and commanded the respect of an entire continent. Although she called herself but a "simple creature," and "a poor little womanly creature," she was known to others in her age as the Sibyl of the Rhine and Old Wrinklegard. The tenth child of a noble family, Hildegard was given by her parents to the monastery of Disibodenberg, a cloistered community of men and women, when she was seven or eight years old. When her mentor died in 1136, she was unanimously elected abbess of the community. Twelve years later, she broke from the male monastery and established a convent near Bingen known as Rupertsberg. In an era when female communities were progressively dominated by their male counterparts, Hildegard fought for the independence of her community by seeking the protection of the Archbishop of Mainz and the Emperor Frederick Barbarosa. Under her leadership, the community became economically successful. In 1165 she established a sister community of Eibingen on the other side of the Rhine from Rupertsberg.

Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) Hildegard of Bingen, mystic and poet, prophet and playwright, composer and scientist, lived all but the first few years of her life in the company of women. Born in 1098 in the Rhineland, Hildegard, the tenth child of a noble family, was offered by her parents at the age of eight to the community of Benedictine nuns in Disobodenberg, where she became abbess in 1136. Sponsor Message.
Hildegard's spiritual gifts had manifested early in her life: at the age of three, as she reveals in her Vita , she saw a brightness so great it made her soul tremble. In fact, according to the documents prepared for the process of Hildegard's canonization (a process initiated but never completed, though she has been listed as a saint in the Roman martyrology since the Middle Ages), she had already perceived a vision of the "living Light" while still in her mother's womb. In 1141, Hildegard experienced a remarkable series of visions, accompanied by a heavenly command to write what she was seeing. Although she initially refused the command, a devastating illness (sent, she believed, from God) persuaded her to begin writing her first visionary text, the

She is the first composer whose biography is known. Founded a vibrant convent, where her musical plays were performed. Although not yet canonized, Hildegard has been beatified, and is frequently referred to as Saint Hildegard. Revival of interest in this extraordinary woman of the middle ages was initiated by musicologists and historians of science and religion. Less fortunately, Hildegard's visions and music had been hijacked by the New Age movement, whose music bears some resemblance to Hildegard's ethereal airs. Her story is important to all students of medieval history and culture, and an inspirational account of an irresistible spirit and vibrant intellect overcoming social, physical, cultural, gender barriers to achieve timeless transcendence.
Hildegard was born the 10th child (a tithe) to a noble family. As was customary with the tenth child, which the family could not count on feeding, she was dedicated at birth to the church. The girl started to have visions of luminous objects at the age of three, but soon realized she was unique in this ability and hid this gift for many years.

St. Hildegard
God The life of Hildegard as child, religious, and superioress was an extraordinary one. Left much to herself on account of her ill health, she led an interior life, trying to make use of everything for her own sanctification. From her earliest years she was favoured with visions. She says of herself: Up to my fifteenth year I saw much, and related some of the things seen to others, who would inquire with astonishment, whence such things might come. I also wondered and during my sickness I asked one of my nurses whether she also saw similar things. When she answered no, a great fear befell me. Frequently, in my conversation, I would relate future things, which I saw as if present, but, noting the amazement of my listeners, I became more reticent. This condition continued to the end of her life. Jutta had noticed her gifts and made them known to a monk of the neighbouring abbey, but, it seems, nothing was done at the time. When about forty years of age Hildegard received a command to publish to the world what she saw and heard. She hesitated, dreading what people might think or say, though she herself was fully convinced of the Divine character of the revelations. But, continually urged, rebuked, and threatened by the inner voice, she manifested all to her spiritual director, and through him to the abbot under whose jurisdiction her community was placed. Then a monk was ordered to put in writing whatever she related; some of her nuns also frequently assisted her. The writings were submitted to the bishop (Henry, 1145-53) and clergy of Mainz, who pronounced them as coming from

HILDEGARD AV BINGEN (1098 - 1179) var en extraordinär kvinna. Det har sagts att "hade Hildegard varit man, så hade hon varit känd som en av de största konstnärer och intellektuella som världen någonsin skådat". Förutom att hon var abbedissa i ett stort och blomstrande benediktinerkloster, var hon en framstående predikant, läkare, vetenskapare och konstnär. Hon var också poet och kompositör, och hon skrev nio böcker i ämnen som teologi, medicin och fysiologi.
Physica Causae et Curae
SOM EN LJUSUPPLEVELSE beskriver Hildegard sitt andliga uppvaknande:
"När jag var 42 år och 7 månader gammal kom det ur öppna himlen ett eldigt ljus av största helighet. Det genomströmmar hela mitt hjärna och sätter hela mitt hjärta och hela mitt bröst i lågor, dock utan att bränna sönder dem, snarare värmande som solstrålar som faller på ett föremål och upphettar detta.
Då plötsligt ägde jag gåvan att förstå böckerna, nämligen Psaltaren, Evangelierna och andra gammal- och nytestamentliga texter. Gåvan till mystiska, hemlighetsfulla och underbara visioner ägde jag sedan min barndom, men jag har undertryckt denna gåva. Jag har mottagit visionerna med hjälp av mina i n r e ögon och öron enligt Guds vilja. För en normal människa är detta svårt att förstå."
