Mystic, religious leader, writer, musician, Hildegard of Bingen is the earliest composer whose life history is known. She was not canonized until 2012, though she was locally considered a saint before that. She was the fourth woman named a Doctor of the Church.
Hildegard is best known for her spiritual concept of Viriditas – “greenness” - the cosmic life force infusing the natural world. For Hildegard, the Divine manifested itself and was apparent in nature. Nature itself was not the Divine but the natural world gave proof of, existed because of, and glorified God. She is also known for her writings on the concept of Sapientia – Divine Wisdom – specifically immanent Feminine Divine Wisdom which draws close to and nurtures the human soul.
She was born in in 1098 and died on September 17, 1179. Pope Benedict XVI oversaw her canonization on May 10, 2012. Her Feast Day is September 17.
