Hildegard of Bingen: New Dates
Certificate in Spiritual Formation
Some 800 years ago, Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), visionary, theologian, composer, artist, physician, and naturalist received a divine mandate to awaken her contemporaries to the tremendous love God has for the whole of creation—cosmos, creatures, and especially His beloved humankind. She was bidden to write down the WORDS, to sketch out and illuminate the VISIONS, and to compose the MUSIC through which God wanted to re-awaken / alert her era to His presence in Creation. Her insights into God’s ways with us and His universe correspond so profoundly with the concerns of our own era that Hildegard’s work is serving today as inspiring guide for contemporary living.
