Abbess. Artist. Composer. Healer. Visionary. Mystic.

Saint Hildegard von Bingen, The Unruly Mystic


Feature documentary film, directed by Michael Conti (USA) 65 minutes.

Discover why Abbess, Artist, Composer, Healer, Visionary Saint Hildegard von Bingen is considered to be the patron saint of creativity, and about her continued impact today. This 12th-century abbess became famous as a Christian Mystic and visionary, as well as a musical composer and writer, and whose natural medicine is still practiced in Europe today.

The Unruly Mystic puts forward the notion that mysticism is one true path to awakening of religion and culture. It’s an idea that will be familiar to any Jungian, but also one echoed by the film’s many passionate figures, each of whom brings an idiosyncratic perspective to the Hildegard ethos.
