    This is an outstanding introduction to everything about the great Hildegard! Beautifully done with illuminations, photographs, and printed music. I learned a lot and look forward to studying this extraordinary woman more in depth.

    I really enjoyed this. My friend gifted me with the cd and this companion book for Christmas. It was interesting to learn pa out Hildegard and then the break down of her poetry and words. Gorgeous photos all throughout.

    She lived such a long time ago that I’m sure it was difficult to find a lot of detailed information, but... this was fairly dry. The Visions portion was interesting; the Music portion was a bit over my head, both with musical terminology and Latin grammar stuff. The Biography was brief and more of a list of events than a story.

    Une biographie de Hildegard Von Bingen qui est courte mais qui a le mérite d'aller à l'essentiel. Le livre contient également plusieurs représentations des visions de la sainte lesquelles sont accompagnées d'une brève description. Les thèmes abordés sont ceux de la Trinité, de la chute de Lucifer et d'Adam, du jugement dernier, etc. En refermant le livre, je ne peux que me demander si ces visions sont réelles ou si elles sont le produit d'un esprit souffrant de délires constants.

    Hildegard was a 12th century nun. She was also a composer, mystic, herbalist. A talented and mystical traveler, her story is nothing short of amazing. Listen to her compositions in the CD entitled 'Vision'. INCREDIBLE! A woman ahead of her time. Or rather, a woman who helped take the world to the next level of evolution as far as spirituality goes.

    A good short read with the basic facts about Hildegard. There is a chapter with pictures of her visions and what they meant. The final chapter features her songs, with both the original Latin wording and English translations.
