Hildegard of Bingen: A Medieval Visionary
Theologian, philosopher, advocate for women's rights, Hildegard was an Abbess, an advisor to Popes and the Monarchy, a healer, composer, artist and more. Hildegard's nuns wore jewelry and headgear "with more jewelry". As she said, “Why look Dowdy and Frumpy for the Lord?” This program will include a power point presentation, music, handouts (join the singing!) and commentary by Dr. William Tortolano, Professor Emeritus of Fine Arts and Music at Saint Michael’s College and expert on Gregorian Chant.
