At a time when few women wrote, Hildegard von Bingen produced major works of theology and visionary writings. She advised bishops, popes, and kings. Famous throughout the twelfth century Europe as “Sybil of the Rhine” for her oracular visions, this German writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, and Benedictine abbess was the only woman to have her writings read aloud in synod by the Pope himself. In Tim Slover’s Virtue, Hildegard is preparing to complete her book of revelations and present it to the Holy See when a penitent named Richardis arrives at her monastery and profoundly disrupts her world. This explosive drama, based on actual writings discovered after Hildegard’s death, explores themes of religion, mysticism, sexual awakening, and spiritualism
