St. Hildegard first came to our attention while studying the scriptural and scientific evidence favoring geocentrism. Dr. Robert Sungenis has done monumental work in studying and explaining that geocentrism is solidly based in Sacred Scripture, Church Tradition, and the Church's Magisterium as well as science itself.
The Geocentric Universe: According to the Visions of St. Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)
This saint came into high prominence a few years ago when a feature film was made of her life, and, after almost a thousand years, she was made a saint and a doctor of the Church on May 10 and October 7, 2012, respectively. This eleventh century German mystic and Benedictine Abbess was called, “The most gifted woman of the epoch” and was gifted with insight into cosmology that far exceeds the theories of Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, Newton, and Einstein. Her medieval German has been translated and analyzed in this new book. Be prepared for an astounding journey.

Saint Hildegard (1098-1179) was the founder and first abbess of the Benedictine community in Bingen, Germany. The tenth child born into an aristocratic family, she was given to the Church at a young age, and lived a famously spiritual life. She was most famous during her lifetime as a visionary and a prophet, regularly receiving visions from the Holy Spirit (the “living Light”). St. Hildegard was aware that she was part of a social and religious elite, and was highly outspoken about her mission and her gifts, but she championed humility and charity above all virtues. She was exceedingly brave and unusual in her choice to become a female leader at this time—to her knowledge, she was the first female to begin writing in the name of God, and to travel to preach publicly. She also founded two nunneries despite the opposition of male superiors in the Church. Later medieval generations remembered St. Hildegard as prophet, and her unique spiritual contributions continue to inspire people today. She was a prolific writer and well-known composer, and among her surviving works are a Christian doctrine uniting ethics and metaphysics, an encyclopedia of herbal medicine and natural science, many letters to people from around Europe and from every societal class who sought her advice on every imaginable problem, mystical poetry, and a body of music including seventy liturgical songs and the Ordo Virtutum, the first known morality play.
