Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book A Companion to Hildegard of Bingen contains the table of contents, notes on contributors, a list of abbreviations, acknowledgments, timeline for Hildegard of Bingen's life and works, and a map illustrating the region of Hildegard of Bingen. The book introduces Hildegard and her works as well as the historical, literary, and religious context of her writings and music. Studies of Hildegard's opera have focused for the most part on her visionary writings and, to a lesser degree, her letters. Scholars who approach the seer's works from the perspective of her visions have viewed Hildegard not only as the exceptional person she was, but also at times as a unique phenomenon.
