This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The Middle Ages - Key Figures - Hildegard of Bingen. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Hildegard was born in West Franconia (now Germany). She was the 10th child of a well-to-do family. She'd had visions connected with illness (perhaps migraines) from a young age, and in 1106 her parents sent her to a 400-year-old Benedictine monastery which had only recently added a section for women.
Hildegard of Bingen was, by modern standards, not as revolutionary as she might have been considered in her time. She preached the superiority of order over change, and the church reforms she pushed for included the superiority of ecclesiastical power over secular power, of popes over kings.
She opposed the Cathar heresy in France, and had a long-running rivalry (expressed in letters) with another whose influence was unusual for a woman, Elisabeth of Shonau.
The presentation covers the following:
House for Women Only
