Hildegard of Bingen
Hildegard of Bingen
Selected Writings

Mark Attherton, translator

Hildegard, the "Sybil of the Rhine," was a Benedictine nun and one of the most prolific and original women writers of the Middle Ages. Arranged thematically, this new edition of her work brings together selections from her visionary trilogy, her treatise on medicine and the natural world, and her songs and correspondence. This unique volume includes a chronology of her life and times, bibliography, select discography, explanatory notes, glossary, and connecting commentary. It shows Hildegard as a wide-ranging thinker who touched on many themes that concern us today, including: the relationship between human beings and the natural world, mutuality between men and women, and the importance of a holistic approach to life. Translated with an introduction by Mark Attherton.

Hildegard of Bingen
Hildegard of Bingen
A Spiritual Reader

Carmen Acevedo Butcher

If you think a 12th-century nun famous in her time for apocalptic visions has nothing to say to us today, think again. In this finely written book, Carmen Butcher shows us a Hildegard who was endearingly human, battling self-doubt while tenaciously and creatively using her many talents to express the love of God and energize the church. The translations make her words fresh and accessible to modern readers.
