Hildegard of Bingen

Below are some of the visions of Hildegard of Bingen (1098 – 1179) that she was called to write for over thirty years. Hildegard said that her visions did not come to her in a state of trance, but that she was wide awake and saw them with the eyes of her mind

“In the year 1141 of the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, the Word of God, when i was forty two years and seven months old, a burning light coming from heaven poured into my mind. Like a flame that does not burn but rather enkindles, it inflamed my heart and my breast, just as the sun warms something with its rays”
