These two Sunday Forums introduce Hildegard of Bingen to us in preparation for the Lenten Vespers series, Living Light in Lent. February 16 will introduce Hildegard, covering the first half of her life and introducing her mysticism.  February 23 will cover the second half of her life with emphasis on community as a growth and healing force.
Musicologist and composer Dr. Ann Gebuhr has devoted years of research to Hildegard of Bingen published in her 2012 book Hildegard!
