St. Hildegard of Bingen: Book of Divine Works (9-week series)
Instructor: Rev. Shanon Sterringer, PhD
Mondays, October 10- November 28 | 7 – 8:30 pm | Online Event | Donations appreciated


This course will take an in-depth look at the ten visions recorded in St. Hildegard’s last and greatest theological work, Liber Divinorum Operum (Book of Divine Works).


This visionary work is a culmination of Hildegard’s complex theology and thought as it developed throughout her lifetime. It unpacks her understanding of the intricate relationship between humans, creation, God, and the cosmos. Her theological concept of viriditas is woven throughout its pages.
