520    Hildegard von Bingen lived in Germany's Rhineland valley 
       during most of the twelfth century (1098-1179). Besides 
       being the abbess of a large and prosperous Benedictine 
       abbey, she was a prominent writer, preacher, healer, poet,
       and composer who wrote nine books on theology, medicine, 
       science, and physiology. Hildegard has been called the 
       first medieval woman to reflect on and write about women. 
       At the age of forty-two, Hildegard began to describe the 
       mystical visions that she had experienced throughout her 
       life, and in so doing she shared her theology with the 
       world. 
520 8  Through Vision, the Angel Records compact disk of 
       Hildegard's liturgical songs, set to contemporary rhythms,
       Hildegard's music and indeed Hildegard herself have been 
       rediscovered. The companion book to the CD, Vision: The 
       Life and Music of Hildegard von Bingen was compiled and 
       edited by Jane Bobko, with text by the well-known 
       Hildegard scholar Barbara Newman and commentary by the 
       theologian Matthew Fox. The book is divided into three 
       sections: a biography, a section in which twelve of 
       Hildegard's visions are reproduced and interpreted, and an
       in-depth discussion of medieval music, and of Hildegard's 
       music in particular. It includes a full translation and 
       analysis of all the songs on the Vision CD.
