Philologists / Hildegard of Bingen, 1098–1179, Feast Day: September 17

An abbess living on the banks of the Rhine, Hildegard of Bingen is considered one of the greatest minds of the twelfth century. She was a poet, composer, prophetess, and physician, equally at home in the arts and sciences. Her compositions are widely performed today. An adviser to popes, emperors, and other abbots and abbesses, Hildegard credited a mystical episode that occurred at the age of forty-two when she was infused with divine understanding of all she read and saw.

  1. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  4. I’m impressed, I have to say. Actually not often do I encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me
    inform you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your
    thought is outstanding; the problem is one thing that not sufficient persons are talking intelligently about.
    I’m very joyful that I stumbled across this in my search for one thing relating to this.
