Hildegard von Bingen

description
The meaning of the complex prophetic text by Hildegard von Bingen, amidst symbolisms and visions
Read more
The book is the story of the journey in which the humanity/bright stars in Eve’s womb join with the stars in the sky. A possibility offered to each soul: to return back to the Light of the origins of the Earth. An experience belonging to Hildegard in her visions and narrated, in obedience to the voice of God, leaving behind her fears, in a precious manuscript where images make the story come alive. A Journey into the Images is born in the hopes of satisfying
this desire for knowledge, revealing the Ways the title of the work promises, in a reading guided by images. The central pages present the 35 original-size miniature reproductions with alongside a key that easily illustrates the symbolic
meaning and a concise description of the vision.
The outcome of 7 years of study, this is the first book that illustrates the complex prophetic text of the German Saint, in a reading guided by images (26 visions and 35 miniatures).
Hildegard von Bingen is one of the four women who are Doctors of the Church.
Hildegard was a German Benedictine abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, visionary and polymath. She is considered to be the founder of scientific natural history in Germany.
Sara Salvadori, a scholar and musician, has been long interested in the role music plays in education and places of healing and care, as a chance to reunite the body and soul at times of growth and human fragility.
