 It has been almost one year (October 7) since my patroness was canonized, so I thought I would do a short update for her feast.

Paraclete Press has put out a revised edition of  St. Hildegard of Bingen, Doctor of the Church: A Spiritual Reader.

"Meet the incomparable St. Hildegard: nourishing, challenging, and idea-bursting. This essential reader includes selections from her songs, theological texts, liturgical music, and letters and will stir and awaken your soul. Combined with an introduction to St.Hildegard’s life and era, a map of the saint's Germany, chronology, and a thorough bibliography/discography, St. Hildegard of Bingen provides the ideal introduction to the thought of this fascinating medieval mystic and the newest Doctor of the Church".

The author Carmen Acevedo Butcher has spent the last twenty years studying and teaching the women mystics of the Christian tradition to people of all backgrounds. She has written Incandescence: 365 Readings with Women MysticsHildegard of Bingen: A Spiritual Reader, and Man of Blessing: A Life of Saint Benedict (Paraclete). She is Associate Professor of English at Shorter University in Rome, Georgia, having earned her doctorate in Medieval Studies from the University of Georgia.
