Sister of Wisdom
Out of stock
Barbara Newman reintroduces English-speaking readers to an extraordinary and gifted figure of the twelfth-century renaissance. Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) was mystic and writer, musician and preacher, abbess and scientist who used symbolic theology to explore the meaning of her gender within the divine scheme of things.
With a new preface, bibliography, and discography, Sister of Wisdom is a landmark book in women’s studies, and it will also be welcomed by readers in religion and history.
