Description


Perhaps the least studied of Hildegard of Bingen's writing, Solutions to Thirty-Eight Questions is translated in this volume from the original Latin into English for the first time. In this work of exegesis, Hildegard (1098-1179) resolves thorny passages of scripture, theological questions, and two issues in hagiographic texts. Solutions to Thirty-Eight Questions joins Hildegard's Homilies on the Gospels, which as well as her authority as an exegete. The twelfth-century saint and perhaps no other medieval woman, wrote in standard genres of exegesis - homiles and solutiones - whose interpretations of scripture were so widely sought.
