One of the most controversial prophets of the Church is St. Hildegard, so I have resolved to first look into her life story and the approval of the Church on her visions and life. It is interesting to note that her visions created great music, medical cures used today, and new understandings of theology. She advised Kings, Monarchs, Bishops and even Popes.
Born at Bockelheim on the Nahe. The family name is unknown of this great seeress and prophetess, called the Sibyl of the Rhine. The life of Hildegard as a child, religious, and superioress was an extraordinary one. Left much to herself on account of her ill health, she led an interior life trying to make use of everything for her own satisfaction. From her early years she was favoured with visions.
