Prayers of Hildegard of Bingen
Edited by Walburga Storch, O.S.B.
Introduction by Caecilia Bonn, O.S.B., Translated by Sharon Therese Nemeth

Open your heart to the words of prayer of Saint Hildegard of Bingen, twelfth–century mystic, healer and abbess, natural scientist, prophetess and spiritual guide—one of the greatest female spiritual figures of the last millennium. From the saint’s great visionary works dealing with God, humans and the cosmos, one of her modern followers has compiled a simple, unpretentious, consoling book of prayer. The mystical writings of Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179), the self-described “trumpet of God” and “zither of the Holy Spirit,” invite you to enter into prayer that is dialogue on all levels: a dialogue between the Creator and the created, one person and another, the individual and nature, the body and the soul, virtue and vice.
