"Flanagan's book would be the one that I would recommend as a first introduction to Hildegard."
"An excellent biography of an extraordinary medieval visionary...a fascinating book about a miraculous life."
"It is the great virtue of Sabina Flanagan's cool, scholarly, and reflective biography that it sets her story so firmly in her own age....A woman of electrifying visionary power, fascinating, often enigmatic and clearly of great presence, she was also a woman with a will and prejudices of her own....It is as such, wrinkles and all, that Sabina Flanagan presents her to us, and we must be grateful for the historical balance of her picture."
-"New York Review of Books
"Sabina Flanagan's biography is a solid introductory account."
