"Her writings are among the earliest important mystic works of the Middle Ages. Like Dante, Hildegard conceived the universe holistically and emphasized the inseparability of the physical and spiritual."
"Hildegard of Bingen [was] one of the greatest thinkers of the Western church. She represents the big link between Christian spirituality and pre-patriarchal spiritualities. I celebrate her return in our midst in this format that encourages prayer and sharing."
