NB: "von Bingen" is not a surname. Her only birth name was Hildegard, and she lived at a time before the use of surnames. It is a descriptive epithet indicating that she came from the town of Bingen, to distinguish her from all the other Hildegards living at the same time. Please do not edit the sortname to file under "B", as that would be equivalent to filing Erik the Red under "R", or William the Conqueror under "C".
Saint Hildegard of Bingen, O.S.B. (German: Hildegard von Bingen; Latin: Hildegardis Bingensis) (1098 – 17 September 1179), also known as Saint Hildegard, and Sibyl of the Rhine, was a German feminist, writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, visionary, and polymath. Elected a magistra by her fellow nuns in 1136, she founded the monasteries of Rupertsberg in 1150 and Eibingen in 1165. One of her works as a composer, the Ordo Virtutum, is an early example of liturgical drama and arguably the oldest surviving morality play.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
