"I have just had the pleasure of reading a lovely book, The Spirit of Saint Hildegard, by Barbara LeVan Fisher. The book uses beautiful artworks, quotes and historical accounts to give a wonderful extensive overview of Hildegard's life and works. I highly recommend it!"
—Peggy Beatty, Benedictine spiritual director
"This book, by its style and its images and its easy-to-read content, contributes significantly to access this great saint, renaissance woman, and newly declared doctor of the church, Hildegard of Bingen. May her visions of a more gender balanced culture and religion, one that operates from a place of viriditas (greening power) and authentic mystical and ecological activism, spread far and wide!"
— Matthew Fox, author of Hildegard of Bingen, a Saint for Our Times, Hildegard of Bingen's Book of Divine Works with Letters and Songs.
"A dazzling and evocative window into the life of Hildegard of Bingen which invites us to integrate her visions and insights into our own lives, inspiring action and grace in tumultuous times.”
—Liz Cunningham, author of Ocean Country: One Woman’s Voyage from Peril to Hope in Her Quest to Save the Seas
"Part biography, part beautifully constructed graphic novel, part cook book, and a balm for our times, The Spirit of Saint Hildegard is all of this and a possible cross-over sensation! The graphic novel meets Saint Hildegard!"
The Spirit of Saint Hildegard is a rich, visual introduction to the life of 12th century abbess, mystic, visionary, and scholar, Hildegard of Bingen. Her writings, artwork and musical compositions are among the world's most luminous treasures ever created. Hildegard's wisdom reaches broad and deep, covering all areas of life, from the study of science and natural history to prayer; from political activism to baking “Cookies of Joy.”
Many people have heard of the mystics Saint Francis of Assisi and Joan of Arc, but for some reason human culture has yet to fully appreciate the unique gifts that Hildegard has bequeathed us. We are now, as a species, at a turning point—facing global warming, cultural and political shockwaves, war and the exodus of millions. We are in need of wisdom like never before. Hildegard of Bingen was a true genius and wrote extensively about a connected view of life which resonates perfectly with modern ecological and compassion movements.
Light some incense, tune your music station to Hildegard’s chants, sit back with a cup of tea and spend some time with The Spirit of Saint Hildegard.
Tayen Lane's mission is to publish new voices across all genres. We publish work that challenges, deeply engages, and facilitates physical/mental health and awareness. We believe that the time is ripe for new voices, fresh ideas, alternative stories and an evolutionary change of direction—a change that sets free the truth behind raging propaganda and a world history written by the victors. We'd also like to give the underdog with a nicely written manuscript the chance to engage the world. It's time for people with empowering, timely, and outside-of-the-mainstream works to offer their advice and inspirations—to tell their stories.
