Product Description

From the Back Cover

In one series, the original writings of the universally acknowledged teachers of the Catholic, Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, Jewish, and Islamic traditions have been critically selected, translated and introduced by internationally recognized scholars and spiritual leaders.

About the Author

Barbara Newman is Professor of English and Religion at Northwestern University. She is author of Sister of Wisdom: St. Hildegard's Theology of the Feminine and editor and translator of Hildegard of Bingen's Symphonia.

Hildegard of Bingen was born into a well-established noble family in Bermensheim and was given to the monastery as a young child. She became a nun and later founded her own convent at Ruperstberg. In addition to her visionary writings, she also composed liturgical music and was skilled in medicine. She was canonized after her death.

Format: Hardcover
This book is an important book for Catholics and indeed for all Christians
with exhortations from the Eternal Father to attain perfection, it repeats the moral code laid down from the beginning but, because the writing is from the Father Himself it is like having a personal conversation with God
This book is highly recommended.
