17th SEPTEMBER: ST HILDEGARDE OF BINGEN

St Hildegarde, Virgin, memorial: September 17. Born A.D. 1098, in the Lower Palatinate (Germany), she took the veil in the Abbey of Mount St Disibode.

Marvellous for her gifts of prophecy, she wrote a Book of Revelations #StHildegard
2. which received the approval of St Bernard and of Pope St Eugenius III.

When Abbess of the monastery, as her community had grown over-numerous, she removed with some of the Sisters to Mount St Rupert near Bingen, where she died A.D. 1179.
3. Her writings have come down to us, but with grave interpolations. (Monks of Ramsgate, "Book of Saints")
