The 12th-century Christian mystic Hildegard of Bingen has been described as "...a visionary, scientist, diplomat, and poet." Created by Dr. Nancy Fierro, CSJ, Hildegard of Bingen and Her Vision of the Feminine transports us through space and time to the medieval cloisters where Hildegard struggled to express her spirituality. How she succeeded in a world open only to men holds lessons for every woman in every age. Join Nancy Fierro to explore: the mystical visions that guided Hildegard's work for over 70 years, Hildegard's three great obstacles and how she overcame them, and fascinating details from her unparalleled contributions to theology, music, medicine, science, and more.
