Hildegard von Bingen's Mystical Visions

Translated from Scivias

Introduction by Matthew Fox

Twelfth-century Rhineland mystic Hildegard von Bingen records her exquisite encounter with divinity, producing a magnificent fusion of divine inspiration and human intellect. Hildegard von Bingen’s Mystical Visions is perhaps the most complete and powerful documentation of mystical consciousness in recorded history. Now after 800 years, these visions are again available for those seeking to reawaken mystical consciousness.

Bruce Hozeski, Ph.D., is Chair of the English Department at Ball State University and specializes in Medieval British literature, dialects, Old English language & literature, Hildegard von Bingen, and honors humanities. He is the author of five books about Hildegard von Bingen and is a major contributor to the annual annotated Chaucer Bibliography.

"Bruce Hozeski's translation succeeds admirably in accommodating the twelfth-century perspective and Hildegard's own unique worldview in terms that are approachable."
