Jonah Winter - Secret World of Hildegard, The

Secret World of Hildegard, The

Author: Jonah Winter; Illustrator: Jeanette Winter

  • AGES 4 - 8 
  • Genre Biography and Autobiography
From the star-studded author of Dizzy (and the mother-son team that brought you Diego) comes a picture book on the extraordinary Hildegard von Bingen, a woman who had the courage to take on kings.

Hildegard von Bingen composed hymns and symphonies, painted glorious pictures, and wrote religious revelations — all in the Dark Ages, when most people were illiterate and women were disdained. This lyrical biography captures Hildegard's faith and beauty, and celebrates the courage it took for a singular woman to let her light shine.

Now Jonah Winter teams up once again with his mother, the award-winning illustrator Jeanette Winter, to bring you Hildegard's remarkable story.
