Hildegard von Bingen - Selected Books

Illuminations of Hildegard of Bingen
by Matthew Fox (Editor)

A great first book on Hildegard! Full color reproductions of her artwork, stories of her life and excerpts from her writings upon which the illuminations are based. Easy to read, it makes a nicegift as well as flip-through picture book. Once you have read this, you are ready togo onto her medical writings, theological books or poems, with a basic background of understanding.

Hildegard of Bingen: Woman of Vision
by Carol Reed-Jones

A great book to share with your children. While written for middle school and upper elementary grade students, this is a lovely overview of Hildegard's life and time,. A relaxing read that sets Hildegard's life into historical context, the author has re-created Hildegard's world in a way that those of many ages can enter into it.


Hildegard of Bingen's Spiritual Remedies

by Dr. Wighard Strehlow

A book of 250 pages, includes natural medthods, such as meditation and fasting, used by Hildegard to treat 'weaknesses of the soul'. This is a companion volume to Dr. Strehlow's Hildegard of Bingen's Medicine.

The Journal of Hildegard of Bingen
by Barbara Lachman

What a lovely book this is! The layout is wonderful, mimicing a medieval book in its notes along the borders and typsetting. I found moments of wonder when the story fell into Hildegard's life with all the pain and passion of true humanity . A fictional must.

Hildegard Von Bingen's Physica :
The Complete English Translation of Her Classic Work on Health and Healing
Priscilla Throop (Translator)

Hildegard wrote two books on healing - Causae et Curae, and Physica, the latter translated here from her original Latin into English for the first time. Hildegard follows the pattern of medical thought of her time, that illiness is a result of imbalance in the living system of mind-body-spirit. Reaching a better balance can ocurr through changing our relationship to many things, including Plants, Elements, Trees, Stones, Fish, Birds, Animals, Reptiles and Metals. Hildegard's writings tend to be difficult to translate, and contain many references to her own Catholic world of spirit. This is a great book for those who are ready to 'feel' Hildegard's words reach out to them, but is a difficult place to start if you have no background in her life or medieval texts.

Hildegard of Bingen, 1098-1179 :
A Visionary Life
by Sabina Flanagan

Basic historical background not just on Hildegard's own life but also on the role and challenges faced by women of her time period in northern European cultures. I found it interesting and distrubing to note that the cultural practices around education still have underlying currents in today's world.

Scarlet Music
A Novel
by Joan Ohanneson

I admit, I haven't read it yet! But I have heard from many people how much they enjoyed it, and that because of reading this book they felt drawn to discover Hildegard's music and writings.This is a fictionalized account of events.

Hildegard, the Last Year
by Barbara Lachman

In 1178, in the 80th year of her life, Hildegard of Bingen and her community of nuns were forced to refrain from their daily cycle of chanted services. Imagining Hildegard's thoughts during that period of enforced silence, author Barbara Lachman creates a "journal" such as Hildegard might have kept--a moving meditation on the power and meaning of the word, music, and silence, and a compelling work of historical re-creation.

The Book of the Rewards of Life
(Liber Vitae Meritorum)
by Hildegard of Bingen :

Translated Bruce W. Hozeski

With Letters and Songs
Matthew Fox (Editor)

Some of HIldegard's own descriptions and interpretations of her visions, a selection of her letters, including those on the sacred nature of music, and ten of her songs in square note notation with English translation. A nice sampling for those wanting to connect Hildegard's life and music.

Symphonia : A Critical Edition of the Symphonia Armonie Celestium Revelationum
by Hildegard of Bingen
Translation and introduction by Barbara Newman

Here you will find all of Hildegard's chants translated into English. As with any translations, the viewpoint and opinions of the translator come through very strongly. I find a strong leaning to feminism here, which is also a nice balance to other translations (including my own). This may be the only complete English version in print.

If you are interested in knowing more of how Hildegard thought about healing and balance in the mind-body-spirit connection, this is a good starter book. It includes highlights from her original writtings in Latin, translated into English, and lets readers take some of her ideas into modern day life.
