Review: Hildegard of Bingen: A New Twelfth-Century Woman Philosopher? [Book Review]

Hypatia 7 (1):115 - 123 (1992)
Three recent publications-Barbara Newman, Sister of Wisdom: St. Hildegard's Theology of the Feminine; Hildegard of Bingen, Scivias, translated by Mother Columba Hart and Jane Bishop; and Sabina Flanagan, Hildegard of Bingen, 1098-1179: A Visionary Life-provide access in English to Hildegard's vast and complex intellectual achievement. Reviewing these works I suggest why Hildegard's thought has only begun to be studied by philosophers, why such study is important, and I propose ways to approach Hildegard's work.
