St. Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)
(taken by Mary Kaye Medinger, 2001) The flames engraved over the head of St. Hildegard on this statue represent the gifts of the Holy Spirit given so abundantly to her. The statue appears on the exterior of the parish church of St. Hildegard in Eibingen, Germany, where her relics are enshrined. Hildegard’s contemporaries in the 12th century knew of her as a Benedictine abbess, and also as a theologian and preacher, poet and composer, healer and author. The Benedictine tradition of prayer and work provided the setting for her long and fruitful life. For over 800 years Hildegard was not widely known outside of Germany. However, recent interest in the role of visionary women in religious history, and discovery of her remarkable creativity in so many areas, have made her today one of the best-known women mystics.

Hildegard of Bingen
First woman scientist whose writings still exist (1098-1179)
Hildegard was born into a wealthy German family, and received an education in a convent. Convents or abbeys were some of the only places women could receive formal education during the Dark Ages. Hildegard studied Latin, religion, and music. She became the abbess (leader) of her abbey. Hildegard wrote natural history books as well as medical books, and was the first person to write about the need to boil drinking water for sanitation. Hildegard also taught religion and medicine, and she emphasized the importance of exercise and diet. She is the first woman whose scientific writings still exist today.

Hildegard von Bingen
Gifted singer, teacher, writer, Auric Healer, and specialist on Hildegard von Bingen, Norma Gentile presents us with a concise working overview of the life and work of the Twelth Century, German visionary. This short biography is the perfect companion peice to Gentile's best selling Lyrichord CD, Unfurling Love's Creation. LONG AGO, BUT NOT SO FAR AWAY, Hildegard's own writings indicate that she was born as the tenth child into a wealthy family in 1098. Had she married, her responsibilities would have been those typical of managing a large and noble household. She would have overseen the servants, made or arranged for purchases of food and goods for the household, born several children, entertained and seen to the welfare of visitors. As a woman she would typically not have been taught to read and write beyond what she received from her mother as a young child. Her brothers would have had tutors and the opportunity to attend a University, among other career choices. During Hildegard's her early childhood she experienced visions, as she later wrote in her biography. These appeared as images of brilliant white light and symphonies of sound from which figures and colorful images emerged. She also experienced a series of illnesses, and was noted as having a frail constitution. It is understandable that her parents choose to have her live within the church setting from the age of eight with the understanding that she would in all likelihood commit herself to becoming a nun later in life. In this way no doubt they believed that she would be cared for, and her visionary experiences accommodated. Educational opportunities within monasteries for women were varied, but typically she would also have the opportunity to learn some Latin, to read the Psalter, and follow a generally contemplative lifestyle.

The Hottest 900-Year-Old on the Charts by Bernard D. Sherman
Musicians mark the birthday of Hildegard von Bingen, queen of the really old school, with radically varied interpretations of her works and debates about what paths stay true to her spirit
This article first appeared in The Los Angeles Times, Sunday, August 9, 1998. It is reprinted by permission. My book Inside Early Music includes a chapter on Hildegard, an interview with Barbara Thornton. For the LA Times article, I interviewed the by-then ailing Thornton again, as well as Christopher Page (of Gothic Voices) and Susan Hellauer (of Anonymous 4), both of whom speak in my book about other topics. After a long battle with cancer, Thornton died in November, 1998; a short tribute to her is posted at my Web site . My interview with Page included some other interesting views on Hildegard; you can read it by clicking here
W hat do you do for an icon on her 900th birthday? You interpret her — and then, to liven things up, you argue about it. This year is the big 9-0-0 for Hildegard of Bingen, the 12th-century abbess who has become a '90s cult figure. She is undoubtedly our only celebrity composer with a short-form bio that reads “mystic, theologian, naturalist, herbalist, poet, and adviser to emperors.”

texts from the chants of
Hildegard von Bingen
~~A NOTE ON THE TRANSLATIONS~~ Each link contains the original Latin of Hildegard's chant and my own English translation. These translations are poetic, not literal. I have translated about half of Hildegard's chants.
Many other professional translations of Hildegard's chants are available. I highly recommend those of Peter Dronke, who has captured both the poetic aspect and the practical understanding as well. I also suggest the book "Symphonia - A Critical Edition of the Symphonia armonie celestium revelationum" by Barbara Newman. This book contains both literal and poetic translations of HIldegard's chants done by Ms. Newman along with the Latin originals.
The Latin spelling is based on Hildegard's Dendermonde manuscript. The spelling was shifted into what was then current usage when it was later re-written into the standard Gregorian style notation
I find that translation is an artistic endeavor, and the personal observations of the translator will color the English texts substantially. For this reason you may wish to consult several different translations to more fully appreciate the intricacy of Hildegard's poetic vision.

Also known as
Sybil of the Rhine
17 September
At a time when few women wrote, Hildegard produced major works of theology and visionary writings . When few women were accorded respect, she was consulted by and advised bishops popes , and kings . She used the curative powers of natural objects for healing, and wrote treatises about natural history and the medicinal uses of plants, animals, trees and stones. She is the first composer whose biography is known. Founded a vibrant convent, where her musical plays were performed. Although not yet canonized, Hildegard has been beatified, and is frequently referred to as Saint Hildegard. Revival of interest in this extraordinary woman of the middle ages was initiated by musicologists and historians of science and religion. Less fortunately, Hildegard's visions and music had been hijacked by the New Age movement, whose music bears some resemblance to Hildegard's ethereal airs. Her story is important to all students of medieval history and culture, and an inspirational account of an irresistible spirit and vibrant intellect overcoming social, physical, cultural, gender barriers to achieve timeless transcendence.
Hildegard was born the 10th child (a tithe) to a noble family. As was customary with the tenth child, which the family could not count on feeding, she was dedicated at birth to the church. The girl started to have visions of luminous objects at the age of three, but soon realized she was unique in this ability and hid this gift for many years.

Hildegard von Bingen - ihre Musik
Von Sr. Maria Immuculata Ritscher, erschienen im Furore Verlag
Um die Mitte des 12. Jahrhunderts begegnen wir einer Frau, die drei Jahrzehnte lang durch ihr Wort, ihre Schriften, ihre Genialität viele Menschen an sich zog: Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179). In der katholischen Kirche wird sie als Heilige verehrt. Hildegard von Bingen wurde in unserem Jahrhundert neu entdeckt. Sie ist uns im Denken, Fühlen und Schauen überraschend nahe. In ihr lebte eine tiefe, leidenschaftliche Liebe und Offenheit zu allem, was das Leben ihrer Zeit betraf. Aber etwas Tieferes an ihr zog viele Menschen an, die bei ihr Rat und Hilfe suchten. Es war die Gabe der "Schau", das heißt, ein inneres Erkennen der Geheimnisse des menschlichen Lebens und der Schöpfung im Lichte Gottes. Einmal beschreibt sie diese "Schau", die sie immer in wachem Zustand empfing, mit diesen Worten: "Ich sehe diese Dinge nicht mit den äußeren Augen und höre sie nicht mit den äußeren Ohren, ich sehe sie vielmehr einzig in meiner Seele, mit offenen leiblichen Augen, so daß ich niemals die Bewußtlosigkeit eines Ekstase erleide, sondern wachend schaue ich dies bei Tag und Nacht. Das Licht, das ich schaue, ist nicht an den Raum gebunden. Es wird mir als der Schatten des lebendigen Lichtes bezeichnet. In diesem Licht sehe ich zuweilen, aber nicht oft, ein anderes Licht, das mir das lebendige Licht genannt wird. Wann und wie ich es schaue, kann ich nicht sagen. Aber solange ich es schaue, ist alle Traurigkeit und alle Angst von mir genommen, so daß ich mich wie ein einfaches junges Mädchen fühle und nicht wie eine alte Frau."

von einer Frau im 12. Jahrhundert. Artikel ¼ber die erste Komponistin der Musikgeschichte hildegard von bingen.
Starke Worte und starke Töne von einer Frau aus dem 12. Jahrhundert Symphoniae harmoniae
celestium revelationum Hildegard von Bingen: Für vieles musste der Name der Äbtissin, Dichterin, Seherin und ersten Komponistin der Musikgeschichte herhalten, für obskure Esoterik ebenso wie für Techno-Gregorianik. Aber auch die unverfälschte Substanz ihres musikalischen Werks wurde in ihrer ganzen Vollständigkeit zu Hildegards 900. Geburtstag vom Ensemble «Sequentia» mustergültig zusammengetragen.

Bericht: Reinmar Wagner «Im Jahre 1141 der Menschwerdung von Jesus Christus, als ich zweiundvierzig Jahre und sieben Monate alt war, fiel ein helles Licht vom Himmel und durchströmte meine Seele. Wie eine Flamme, die nicht brennt, sondern wärmt, durchglühte sie mein Herz und meine Brust, so wie die Sonne, die mit ihren Strahlen wärmt.» So beginnt das erste und wichtigste Werk der Hildegard von Bingen, «Scivias», was «Wisse die Wege» bedeutet, und die Visionen enthält, welche der Äbtissin vom Rupertsberg, ihrem Kloster hoch über dem Rhein, gegenüber von Bingen, schon von Kindheit an erschienen. Im Alter von vierzig Jahren begann sie, ihre Visionen schriftlich und bildlich festzuhalten.
"Der Klang dieser Stimmen kam durch mich, und ich hatte keine Langsamkeit und keine Schwierigkeit, sie zu verstehen. Das geschieht deshalb, weil überall, wo göttliche Gnade waltet, alle Schatten der Dunkelheit verjagt werden und diejenigen Dinge rein und licht werden, welche von den fleischlichen Sinnen in der Schwachheit des Fleisches empfangen wurden."

Gott Kloster Benediktusregel Hildegard von Bingen ... Gastaufenthalt Hildegard von Bingen:
Hoffnungsgestalt der Kirche

Von Ein Wort der Hoffnung können wir uns niemals selbst zusprechen. Hoffnung muß ein anderer uns zusagen, einer, der es gut mit uns meint, einer, der die Grundmelodie unseres Herzens kennt und sie uns zuruft, wenn wir sie vergessen haben. Einem verzweifelten, orientierungslosen und suchenden Zeitgenossen rief Hildegard von Bingen vor 900 Jahren zu: "Schau auf zum Herrn, und die Welt wird neu!"
"Schau auf zum Herrn, und die Welt wird sich verändern, weil du sie mit neuen Augen siehst" - das ist, meine ich, ein wahrhaft prophetisches Wort: zeitlos gültig und heute so aktuell wie damals. Ein Wort, das Richtung weist, auch uns. Vielleicht ist dieses Wort sogar der Schlüssel zu einer neuen Hoffnung. Denn ohne Hoffnung können wir nicht leben. Wo keine Hoffnung ist, da stirbt Leben, da öffnen sich keine Türen mehr, da bleibt alles verschlossen und versinkt in einem Sumpf von Resignation und Verzweiflung. Wir erleben solches heute, doch seien wir getrost: auch zur Zeit Hildegards waren solche Gefühle und Stimmungen keineswegs unbekannt.

Av Kerstin Stina Carlsson Hildegards anvisningar.
HILDEGARD AV BINGEN (1098 - 1179) var en extraordinär kvinna. Det har sagts att "hade Hildegard varit man, så hade hon varit känd som en av de största konstnärer och intellektuella som världen någonsin skådat". Förutom att hon var abbedissa i ett stort och blomstrande benediktinerkloster, var hon en framstående predikant, läkare, vetenskapare och konstnär. Hon var också poet och kompositör, och hon skrev nio böcker i ämnen som teologi, medicin och fysiologi.
Physica Causae et Curae
SOM EN LJUSUPPLEVELSE beskriver Hildegard sitt andliga uppvaknande:
"När jag var 42 år och 7 månader gammal kom det ur öppna himlen ett eldigt ljus av största helighet. Det genomströmmar hela mitt hjärna och sätter hela mitt hjärta och hela mitt bröst i lågor, dock utan att bränna sönder dem, snarare värmande som solstrålar som faller på ett föremål och upphettar detta.
Då plötsligt ägde jag gåvan att förstå böckerna, nämligen Psaltaren, Evangelierna och andra gammal- och nytestamentliga texter. Gåvan till mystiska, hemlighetsfulla och underbara visioner ägde jag sedan min barndom, men jag har undertryckt denna gåva. Jag har mottagit visionerna med hjälp av mina i n r e ögon och öron enligt Guds vilja. För en normal människa är detta svårt att förstå."
