    Saint, mystic, healer, visionary, fighter, Hildegard von Bingen stands as one of the great figures in the history of women in me. At a time when few women could write and most were denied a formal education, Hildegard von Bingen became a legendary healer, visionary, musician, artist, poet, and saint.   Illuminations is riveting, following von Bingen through to emerge as one of the significant voices of the 12th century Unforgettable.” —January Magazine One of the most extraordinary women of the Middle Ages, Hildegard von Bingen—Benedictine abbess, healer, composer, saint—experienced mystic visions from a very young age/5(19).

    The first vision in book two of Hildegard von Bingen's masterwork, vision focused on Adam and Christ, where Adam fails to pick a flower representing "the sweet precept of obedience".   There are some great books out there on Hildegard. I think a good starting point is Matthew Fox's book, "Hildegard of Bingen: A Saint for Our Times". I also really enjoyed Carmen Acevedo Butcher's "Hildegard of Bingen: A Spiritual Reader". Both.
