Hildegard von Bingen (1098–1179) was a medieval mystic and visionary. She was the author of books on spirituality, medicine, health, and nature, and she composed music that is taught in universities to this day. In an era when women were often silenced, she had her own male secretary, wrote plays, created art to communicate her challenging visions, went on a strike, and built her own convent! Hildegard’s life and visions continue to challenge and inspire.
