Description

Best known as a fine composer, the twelfth-century German abbess and later saint was also a religious leader and visionary, a poet, naturalist and writer of medical treatises.
Fiona Maddocks draws on Hildegard's prolific writings to paint a portrait of her extraordinary life against the turbulent medieval background of crusade and schism, scientific and cultural revolution.
