Hildegard of Bingen: A Spiritual Reader by Hildegard of Bingen

ldquo;Humanity, take a good look at yourself. Inside, yoursquo;ve got heaven and earth, and all of creation. Yoursquo;re a world ndash; everything is hidden in you.rdquo; ndash;Hildegard of Bingen nbsp; She was a Benedictine abbess, artist, composer, dietician, naturalist, poet, travelling preacher, mystic, and political consultant. She was a self-doubter with acute certainty in a merciful and mysterious God; a gifted healer who suffered from illness her whole life. Meet the incomparable Hildegard of Bingen. Nourishing, challenging, and idea-bursting, her writings will stir and awaken your soul. nbsp; This essential reader captures the vibrant spirit and intelligence of Hildegard with selections from her songs, theological texts, liturgical music, and letters. Combined with an introduction to Hildegardrsquo;s life and era, a map of Hildegardrsquo;s Germany, chronology, and a thorough bibliography/discography,Hildegard of Bingenprovides the ideal introduction to the thought of this fascinating medieval mystic. nbsp; ldquo;Nothing short of delightful . . . . I often felt I was reading Hildegard, the real Hildegard, for the first time.rdquo; -Dr. Katharina Wilson, Professor of Comparative Literature, The University of Georgia nbsp; ldquo;This book is a gift to the church. Carmen Butcher wisely selects and elegantly translates Hildegardrsquo;s works, including her soaring music, spiritual visions, and selected letters.rdquo; -Scot McKnight, author ofThe Jesus CreedandThe Real Mary nbsp; ldquo;Carmen Butcher has tapped into St. Hildegardrsquo;s spirit and made it accessible.rdquo; ndash; Br. Benet Exton, O.S.B., St. Gregoryrsquo;s Abbey and University
