- feast: September 17
St. Hildegard of Bingen was a medieval mystic who is worth learning about whether approached from a religious or secular perspective.
If you care about the history of women in philosophy, in music composition, in medicine, in theology, or in science, Hildegard is up your alley.
St. Hildegard was the first conlanger. Her conscript is really neat looking; if anyone knows any later uses of it, please let me know.
