Skillfully weaving historical fact with insight and imagination, Illuminations brings to life one of the most extraordinary women of the Middle Ages: Hildegard von Bingen, Benedictine abbess, visionary, and polymath.
Offered to the Church at the age of eight, Hildegard was expected to live in silent submission. But Hildegard rejected masochistic piety, rejoicing in her own visions of the divine and breaking out of her prison to answer the heavenly call of her visions and to liberate her sisters. Riveting and utterly unforgettable, Illuminations is a deeply moving portrayal of a woman willing to risk everything for what she believed.
