Murphysboro Centuries, 12th sacred

Hildegard of Bingen, 1098-1179
- a German nun, she was a mystic, seeing visions, as well as a medical scholar, a composer (her songs, as well as an opera, Ordo Virtutum, are still performed in the 21st century), and a “prophetess” who was consulted by popes, kings and religious leaders all across Europe - her visions of Christ led people to ask her for answers to political and theological questions that bothered the greatest people of the century
