Giclée print of my work ‘O Ignis Spiritus Paracliti,’ featuring my absolute favorite Saint of all time (and Doctor of the Church!), Hildegard von Bingen. Print includes white border as shown in the second photo. This listing is for the 16″x16″ size. (12″x12″ available in another listing.)
Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) was a German Benedictine “magistra”, or abbess, mystic, and polymath whose works include both inspired visions (including ‘Scivias’), books of medicine and science, and a great body of songs (‘Symphonia armoniae celestium revelationum’). She lived to a great age and even went on a preaching tour in her 60’s! Although the case for her canonization was opened soon after her death, Church bureaucracy got in the way and she was only officially canonized in 2012. Now she is venerated throughout the whole Church as both a Saint and as one of only four female Doctors of the Church.
Text on artwork is from the sequence ‘O Ignis Spiritus Paracliti’ and reads:
“Spirit of Fire!
Praise then be yours.
You are the song of praise
and the delight of life!
A hope and a potent honor,
granting garlands of light.”
– based on the translation by Barbara Newman.
