Visionary

Visionary

The sun shines behind a metal figure dipicting Saint Hildegard of Bingen on the roof ridge of the Disibodenberg museum on the former site of a monastery in the Palatinate Forest near Bad Kreuznach, some 100 kms (60 mls) west of Frankfurt, Sep.6. Taken through the leaves of a chestnut tree. Hildegard of Bingen, a Benedictine abbess and visionary, lived here in the 12th century. She probably was the most famous woman in Germany in the middle ages.
