F requently A sked Q uestions about Hildegard
- updated 27 June, 2008 In the last 10 years, our understanding of the medieval world has been revolutionized by two remarkable things: One (1), the new critical editions produced by Turnhout: Brepols Corpus Christianorum Continuatio Mediaeualis (replacing PL 197 and Pitra ); Two(2), digital technology which has facilitated our access to source manuscripts and enabled spontaneous dialogue with world scholars and enthusiasts. This explosion of intellectual interaction has placed us today in a better position to contextualize Hildegard's life and works among her contemporaries. The FAQ sheet below is intended to highlight some of the contentious issues in Hildegard scholarship in the form of most Frequently Asked Questions about Hildegard. It also serves to contextualize her life and works within the scope of 12th century Rhineland, dispelling the popular myths that the Middle Ages were a period of ignorance and superstition. The answers below are based upon the most recent primary source study and reflect the current trends, perspectives, and debates in Hildegard scholarship. As such, we can expect this FAQ sheet to be clarified and updated as more evidence comes to light. The spirit of this FAQ sheet is drawn from Friedrich Nietzsche's famous quote, "Convictions are more dangerous enemies of truth than lies." Being such, we are reminded that the role of the historian is not to simply recount facts and events for rote memorization in order to create an unshakeable foundation for belief, but rather to provide methods and perspectives on how to determine and use sources for exploration into a variety of perspectives: historical, generational, cultural, political etc.

66. Biography: Hildegard Of Bingen, Visionary (17 Sep 1179)
Biographical profile of this extraordinary medieval woman. Includes prayer in traditional and contemporary language.
Hildegard of Bingen, Visionary
17 September 1179
"Listen: there was once a king sitting on his throne. Around him stood great and wonderfully beautiful columns ornamented with ivory, bearing the banners of the king with great honor. Then it pleased the king to raise a small feather from the ground, and he commanded it to fly. The feather flew, not because of anything in itself but because the air bore it along. Thus am I, a feather on the breath of God." Hildegard of Bingen has been called by her admirers "one of the most important figures in the history of the Middle Ages," and "the greatest woman of her time." Her time was the 1100's (she was born in 1098), the century of Eleanor of Aquitaine, of Peter Abelard and Bernard of Clairvaux The community of nuns at Mount St. Disibode was growing rapidly, and they did not have adequate room. Hildegard accordingly moved her nuns to a location near Bingen, and founded a monastery for them completely independent of the double monastery they had left. She oversaw its construction, which included such features (not routine in her day) as water pumped in through pipes. The abbot they had left opposed their departure, and the resulting tensions took a long time to heal. Ordo Virtutum and show us a human soul who listens to the Virtues, turns aside to follow the Devil, and finally returns to the Virtues, having found that following the Devil does not make one happy.

Background: Who was Hildegard of Bingen?
Hildegard was an abbess, prophetess, poet, healer, theologian, and musician. She was born in one of the most innovative and creative centuries of the Middle Ages, and is herself symbolic of the apex of medieval culture. One of the most educated, prolific women of all time, she preached against heresy and corruption, wrote massive works on medicine and visionary theology, was a prolific and highly original composer, and commanded the respect of an entire continent. Although she called herself but a "simple creature," and "a poor little womanly creature," she was known to others in her age as the Sibyl of the Rhine and Old Wrinklegard. The tenth child of a noble family, Hildegard was given by her parents to the monastery of Disibodenberg, a cloistered community of men and women, when she was seven or eight years old. When her mentor died in 1136, she was unanimously elected abbess of the community. Twelve years later, she broke from the male monastery and established a convent near Bingen known as Rupertsberg. In an era when female communities were progressively dominated by their male counterparts, Hildegard fought for the independence of her community by seeking the protection of the Archbishop of Mainz and the Emperor Frederick Barbarosa. Under her leadership, the community became economically successful. In 1165 she established a sister community of Eibingen on the other side of the Rhine from Rupertsberg.

The architecture of this room, with its narrow confines and arched ceiling, were inspired by a room in a 15th century anonymous Master of Flémalle painting in the Prado. I don't know if it is true to the architecture of the 11th and 12th centuries, but it does seem to capture the feeling of being cloistered. The composition nailed to the wall behind her is her song De Sancta Maria; there is a complete copy secreted behind the little door in the back of the painting. It celebrates the Virgin Mary as a "green branch" - to Hildegard, green was the holiest and purest of colors. The painting is done in egg tempera with translucent oils glazed over it, the darks built up slowly over the last year and a half. The frame is oak, and the inset marquetry panel has an oak background, with purpleheart letters. The diamond-shaped insets next to the keys are also purpleheart. The 8th Psalm reads:
What is man that You are mindful of him

73. Hildegard Von Bingen Text
… man flies with the two wings of rationality, that is to say, with the knowledge of good and evil. The right wing is good knowledge and the left, evil.
Hildegard of Bingen
Kate Robinson 2004 … man flies with the two wings of rationality, that is to say, with the knowledge of good and evil. The right wing is good knowledge and the left, evil. Evil knowledge serves the good, and good knowledge is kept in check by the evil, and is even made more discerning by it. Indeed the good is made wise in all things through the evil. Extract of letter from Hildegard to the Monk Guibert The twelfth century nun, Hildegard of Bingen (1098- 1179), grew up in a Benedictine monastery, left there by her parents at the age of eight, and by all accounts had a pretty miserable time. When she was about thirty-eight, Hildegard owned up to having 'visions' sent from God. She experienced the visions from when she was a small child, but had kept them secret: '…for fear of the scepticism of others, the shrugging of shoulders, and the manifold gossip of mankind…' Spurred on by encouragement from the eminent intellectual heavyweight of the day, Bernard of Clairvaux, and subsequently by Papal approval, Hildegard dictated descriptions of her visions to her faithful scribe and secretary, the monk, Volmar, and throughout the rest of her life, Hildegard produced a substantial and fascinating body of work ranging from music to medicine to cosmology and God. Hildegard dictates her visions, emanating like flames from above, to the monk, Volmar.

Hildegard of Bingen Known as the Sybil of the Rhine, Hildegard was one of the most influential women of the XII Century. Born in into a noble family at Böckelheim, Hildegard was, as a child, sickly; her visions, recorded in Scivias , began during childhood. Educated by a recluse, Jutta, she became a nun at 15, and in , succeeded her mentor as abbess of the community that had grown up around Jutta. Hildegard moved the convent to Rupertsberg in . A woman of many talents, Hildegard wrote poems and hymns, as well as medical and scientific works. The latter are remarkable in their observational skill. She wrote Scivias (variously Knowing the Ways of the Lord or Let us Know! ) with the permission of her confessor, Godfrey, and the help of a monk, Volmer. She invented her own language, a blend of Latin and German, that had 23 letters and 900 words. Hildegard also wrote commentary on the gospels, the Athanasian creed, and the Rule of St. Benedict

The Life and Works of Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179)
The Early Years
Hildegard was born a "10"th child (a tithe) to a noble family. As was customary with the tenth child, which the family could not count on feeding, she was dedicated at birth to the church. The girl started to have visions of luminous objects at the age of tree, but soon realized she was unique in this ability and hid this gift for many years.
The Awakening
During all these years Hildegard confided of her visions only to Jutta and another monk, named Volmar, who was to become her lifelong secretary. However, in 1141, Hildegard had a vision that changed the course of her life. A vision of god gave her instant understanding of the meaning of the religious texts, and commanded her to write down everything she would observe in her visions. And it came to pass ... when I was 42 years and 7 months old, that the heavens were opened and a blinding light of exceptional brilliance flowed through my entire brain. And so it kindled my whole heart and breast like a flame, not burning but warming... and suddenly I understood of the meaning of expositions of the books... Yet Hildegard was also overwhelmed by feelings of inadequacy and hesitated to act.

HILDEGARD of Bingen: Cosmic Christ, Religion of Experience, God the Mother
It is appropriate to remember Hildegard with light imagery since that is how she describes her spiritual awakening (see Vision Two below) . "When I was forty-two years and seven months old, a burning light of tremendous brightness coming from heaven poured into my entire mind. Like a flame that does not burn but enkindles, it inflamed my entire heart and my entire breast, just like the sun that warms an object with its rays" What did this illumination do for Hildegard? "All of a sudden, I was able to taste of the understanding of the narration of books. I saw the Psalter clearly and the evangelists and other catholic books of the Old and New Testaments." Hildegard was overcome by this experience of intuition, connection-making, and insight and went to bed sick. It was when she "placed my hand to writing" that she received new strength, got out of bed, and spent the following ten years writing her first book called Scivias. Hildegard's teaching forced people to "wake up," take responsibility, make choices. Prophets "illuminate the darkness,' she tells us. They are the people who can say "God has illuminated me in both my eyes. By them I behold the splendor of light in the darkness. Through them I can choose the path I am to travel, whether I wish to be sighted or blind by recognising what guide to call upon by day or by night.'' Here we learn the title of her book Scivias, which means "Know the Ways." Hildegard means "know the wise ways as distinct from the foolish ways." People who follow the ways of wisdom "will themselves become a fountain gushing from the waters of life ... For these waters - that is, the believers - are a spring that can never be exhausted or run dry. No one will ever have too much of them . . . the waters through which we have been reborn to life have been sprinkled by the Holy Spirit."

One Tough Sister
Counselor of popes and kings, Hildegard of Bingen has been posthumously politicized
BY: Charlotte Allen Email Share Comments Excerpted from The Women's Quarterly
It's time for us to take back Hildegard of Bingen. For too long, the medieval German abbess, composer, and mystical poet has been dragooned into the role of cult figure for every half-baked notion of our time. Hildegard was justly famous all over Europe during her own time, the 12 th century, as a prodigious writer, an advisor of kings and prelates, and a healer of physical and mental ills. Her meditations and musical compositions are currently enjoying a huge revival, and while this rediscovery of her spiritual depth and artistic brilliance was long overdue, the resurgence in her fame has been a mixed blessing, for Hildegard is being re-invented as a posthumous spokeswoman for feminist causes and an icon of rebellion against the church. A prime example of this revisionism involves Hildegard's best-known religious work, "Scivias." The manuscript elaborates on the abbess's many visions of Divine Wisdom. Because Wisdom is personified as a woman in the Book of Proverbs and elsewhere in scripture, Hildegard's latter-day literary admirers have cast her as a worshipper of the Goddess Sophia, just like so many feminist theologians.
