My latest column has been published at Patheos. Follow this link to read it: A Mystical Vision of the Trinity.
It’s about Hildegard of Bingen and her vision of the Holy Trinity — which was depicted in one of the many illuminations found in the original manuscript of Hildegard’s book Scivias.
With Hildegard slated to be declared a Doctor of the Church on October 7, I’ll be teaching several classes and leading two retreats on Hildegard, both here in Georgia and in South Carolina, this fall. The more I learn about Hildegard, the more impressed I am with her. She is brilliant for her profoundly positive spirituality of nature, the cosmos, and the body (she was one of the first medical writers of medieval Europe), along with a clear appreciation of the authority of personal experience — which paved the way for many other great visionaries who followed in her footsteps.
Any, pop over to Patheos and take a look at A Mystical Vision of the Trinity to get a sense of what makes Hildegard so special.
