One of only four female Doctors of the Church, St. Hildegard was a mystic, healer, artist, scientist, composer, poet, writer, philosopher, theologian, and German Benedictine abbess. Born to a noble family, she started receiving visions from God when she was three years old, so she always had a special relationship with God and his creation. She wielded the knowledge from her visions to advise emperors and bishops, start a new order, compose poetry and music, author many books, and create healing recipes.
