Our Reading the Mystics series resumes this Wednesday 6/9 at 7 pm in HNJ Room 101. Our facilitator will be Christine Miesowicz and our focus, Hildegard of Bingen. Hildegard was a German writer, composer, artist, playwright, philosopher, mystic, Benedictine abbess, visionary, and polymath. She authored theological, botanical and medicinal texts, as well as numerous letters, liturgical songs, and poems. She had extensive correspondence with Popes, Bishops, Emperors and Saints. On 7 October 2012, Pope Benedict XVI named St. Hildegard a Doctor of the Church. Come join us as we explore the mystical writings and artistic works of this exceptionally graced and talented woman. We hope to see you there!
