Overview

Celebrating the 2012 declaration of Hildegard of Bingen (1098 - 1179) as a Doctor of the Church, Elizabeth Obbard, OCD, interprets selections from Hildegard’s first and major work, Scivias. Obbard includes her own drawings, done in the Benedictine tradition, to illuminate the prophetic visions put forth by the German mystic. Hildegard is concerned with the whole panorama of the story of salvation. Reason is paramount. Order is necessary. She writes on creation, the Trinity, baptism and confirmation, lay people, the Eucharist, the history of salvation, virtues, angels, and “The Symphony of the Blessed.” Obbard’s lucid rendering of the English text is an excellent way to access Hildegard’s wisdom.
