Born in the Middle Ages, Hildegard was a woman of the ages. At a time when few women wrote - either text or music, Hildegard produced major visionary works. She was the 10th child, and was "tithed" to the church, just as wages and income were at the time. Saint Hildegard has become an inspirational representation of true and honest spirit and intellect - without regard to gender. She broke through the glass ceiling before it was ever conceived.
She has become timeless and has crossed the barrier of religion as well. Her writings have become essential to the New Age movement and she is well respected in her studies in many fields including herbs, plants, religion and medicinal uses of these plants, as well as animals and stones.
These lovely holy cards are a bit lighter weight than some others we offer, but the printing is absolutely outstanding. They are a convenient size for use as gifts or bookmarks - measuring 3-1/8 by 4-5/8 inches on heavy cream-colored paper. The back is blank except for a faint colophon at the bottom, leaving plenty of room for custom imprinting with your own message, or a place to write a note to a friend, or to inscribe an appropriate prayer.
