St. Hildegard, the Divine Feminine, and the Greening of God – Zoom Workshop
St. Hildegard, the Divine Feminine, and the Greening of God
Saturday, Nov. 14, 2-3 p.m.
Today St. Hildegard is known especially for her visions and lyrics concerning the feminine Divine and her prescient ecological awareness. After a short introduction, we will focus on her visions of divine Love (Caritas) and Lady Wisdom. It will also explore her urgent prophetic message about cosmology, ecological balance, and the effects of human sinfulness on the environment. Barbara Newman, author and professor at Northwestern University in Illinois, will facilitate this Zoom workshop. She is known for her work on medieval religious culture, comparative literature, and women’s spirituality.
