Prophetess of Germany - Visionary - Mystic - Doctor of the Church
Come with us as we travel to Bingen, Germany and the area of the beautiful Rhine River which is where St. Hildegard lived and had her visions. It was also here where she wrote her books on her visions and many other things, like a Morality Play, put to music, which she also wrote. She wrote a book on herbal medicine which is used to this day in that area of Germany. She made speaking tours throughout Germany. She wrote letters to Abbots, Kings, Emperors and Popes, in addition to many ordinary people.
Come to her first Abbey, Disibodenberg, about 30 kilometers from Bingen, where she was placed at 8 years old and spent over half her life. She wrote her first book there. She is an outstanding woman of our Church. She is a role model for all, but especially women.
