Saint Hildegard of Bingen

Feast day: September 17

The name is German and is composed of Old High German words hilt, “battle,” and gart, “fence, enclosure”; in free translation, she could be called “she who is strong in battle”.

Saint Hildegard of Bingen was an exceptional medieval woman who made her mark in numerous fields. She was a Benedictine nun, mystic, composer, writer, healer, and philosopher. Her spirituality and mystical visions are recorded in works such as “Scivias” and “Liber Vitae Meritorum,” addressing various aspects of spiritual life. Hildegard also contributed to music with her church songs and hymns. Her compositions are known for their beauty and spirituality and are still performed today. Through her musical creations, she connected spirituality and art, making her music an important means of expressing faith and worship. Hildegard’s music is thus one of the significant legacies of this exceptional medieval saint.
