Discovering Hildegard of Bingen

Presented by Lyn Holley Doucet M.ED., M.S.

Saint Hildegard of Bingen (1098–1179) is one of the most inspiring figures in Christianity: a Doctor of the Church, visionary mystic, powerful composer of hymns, artist, and philosopher. Now, you have the opportunity to know Hildegard intimately in this program on her life and spirituality.

The story of her stunning visionary life and images of her great works of art have come down to us through the centuries. They are priceless gifts birthed from her long life as a Benedictine nun. Embark on this journey through Hildegard’s life and works. Lyn Doucet delivers this excellent lectures in her signature Southern voice

Hildegard created major texts of theology and cosmology accompanied by rich and powerfully beautiful illuminations: paintings derived directly from her visions. Hildegard also created lovely music for her nuns to sing, and her music is still widely popular today. She worked as a physician in her monasteries and wrote two books on the natural world and healing. Her letters to popes, kings, bishops, monks, nuns, and laypeople continue to offer an amazing glimpse into her life and times.

Hildegard’s understanding of all things great and small was ahead of its time, and her relationship with God continues to speak powerfully to us in our own era. Blessed John Paul II called Hildegard a “light for her people and her time.” Spend some time with this inspiring Doctor of the Church and discover how her mystical light continues to guide us today.
