Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) is one of the most recognizable medieval women, famous for her visionary writings and paintings, medical treatises, as well as over 70 musical compositions. In all of her works, Hildegard’s voice was highly original, offering a distinctly female perspective. Her songs were dedicated to various heavenly beings, and highest in this pantheon was Mary, the radiant jewel blooming with the power to save humanity. The other most beloved saint was Ursula and her 11,000-strong army of martyrs, who served as inspiration for many of Hildegard’s most beautiful and intricate pieces.
