Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) was an extraordinary woman living in the Rhineland valley during most of the twelfth century. Besides being the abbess of a large and influential Benedictine abbey, she was a prominent preacher, healer, scientist and artist. She was also a composer and theologian, writing nine books on theology, medicine, science and physiology as well as 70 poems and an opera. At the age of 42 she began to have visions; these were captured as 36 illuminations - 24 of which are recorded in this book along with her commentaries on them.

"We find relatively few Christian guides in the past to enlighten or to inspire us to a more functional relationship between the human and the natural worlds. . . . Hildegard might be considered a model with her sense of the earth as region of delight. . . . She has reached far into the emotionally exciting aspects of nature in a unique mode of Christian communion. She sees the creation maker in the ancient manner of the fertility cults, a view she expresses in her statement that creation and creator are related as woman and man. Only thus is the earth fruitful. . . . Because of this 'erotic' bond the earth becomes luxuriant in its every aspect." --Thomas Berry, author of The Great Work and The Dream of the Earth
