Saving Mary

Hildegard of Bingen…a woman teacher, prophet.

Posted on by Deidre Havrelock

One of my favorite books was written by a German nun, Hildegard of Bingen. Her work entitled Scivias is not an easy read by any means (over 500 pages), but gosh–I loved the imagery of the detailed visions. My favorites being vision 6 and 9. Both are about “the Church.”  And if you are into end time prophecy, then this is the book for you. You can GO HERE to read a sample. Just recently a movie was made about Hildegard’s life. I watched it today and thought some of you might enjoy a look into the life of a woman mystic. (She was born in 1098…a heck of a long time ago!) Watch the trailer HERE.


“Praise, therefore, praise God, ye blessed hearts, for the miracles God has wrought in the frail earthly reflection of the beauty of the Most High; as He Himself foreshadowed when he first made Woman from the rib of the man He had created.”  (Hildegard of Bingen: Scivias. Trans. Mother Columba Hart and Jane Bishop. New York: Paulist Press, 1990. P. 536.)
