This is the paperback edition of the first of a projected four-volume set, and is the first English translation of the correspondence of one of the most remarkable women of pre-modern times. Consisting of nearly four hundred letters addressed to some of the most notable people of the twelfth century, the correspondence reveals St Hildegard as a determined reformer, castigating seer, theoretical musician, patient adviser, and exorcist.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Every library supporting a women's studies program should have this useful and seminal volume. * Choice *
I think this is the translation of Hildegard's letters that medievalists have been waiting for. It is based on a reliable edition, movingly and accurately translated, and will be useful to many scholars. * Elizabeth A. Petroff, University of Massachusetts, Amherst *
Baird and Ehrman's translation is at once accurate and smooth, rendering Hildegard's Latin in an English style as idiomatic as her quirky language permits....This is an excellent starting point for readers who want to sample the writings of this great monastic in small doses before dipping into her formidable visionary tomes. * Reviews for Religious *
This first volume...makes available for the first time in English 90 letters to and from both the upper echelon of church and state and lesser ecclesiastical figures. * Theological Studies *
