St. Hildegard's illustrations may have radiated color, but her writings have no gray areas to them. What she writes about, though at times may be hard for us to understand, is black and white in the teachings of  the Catholic Church...which is no less that the truth of Christ.

Here we present some illustrations of art- in Black & White- some old, some new, mostly from Germany.


Loving tenderness abounds for all
from the darkest
to the most eminent one beyond the stars,
Exquisitely loving all
she bequeaths the kiss of peace
upon the ultimate King.
St. H. cures the blind boy

Abbey St. H (Beuronese)

Now let all Ecclesia shine in joy
and sound in symphony
praising the most tender woman,
Mary, the bequeather/seed-source of God.

St. H Abbey (Beuronese)

You, all-accomplishing
Word of the Father
are the light of primordial
daybreak over the spheres.
You, the foreknowing
mind of divinity,
foresaw all your works
as you willed them,
your prescience hidden
in the heart of your power,
your power like a wheel around the world,
whose circling never began
and never slides to an end. Amen
