St. Hildegard of Bingen

By the time she was eight years old, Hildegard of Bingen knew that she would become a religious sister. God spoke to her in visions, and she learned much from Him about the Scriptures and the history of salvation. Because of her many hours speaking with and listening to God, Hildegard was able to teach others about His plan. She wrote many letters, poems, and songs to describe the beauty of God and His creation.
