Jutta And Hildegard. This book presents in one volume the full range on biographical sources of the outstanding female religious figure of twelfth-century Germany, Hildegard of Bingen (1098&–1179). In addition it gives the English reading public the first in-depth view of Hildegard's spiritual mother, Jutta of Disibodenberg (1092&–1136). Most documents appear in translation for the first time. In particular, the Life of Jutta, which Hildegard herself instigated as a memorial to her spiritual mother, is a major source, recently discovered, that sheds new light on the early life of Hildegard. In addition to her accurate and sensitive translations, Silvas provides a detailed apparatus of up-to-date introductions, notes, and appendices. Included are the following documents: &• Chronicles of Disibodenberg (selections) &• Charters of Disibodenberg &• Documents of Sponheim &• Life of Jutta &• Guibert's Letter 38 to Bovo (including his incomplete Life of Hildegard) &• Life of Hildegard &•Eight Readings to be read on the Feast of St. Hildegard &• Guibert's Revision of the Life of Hildegard &• Charters of Rupertsberg &• Canonization Proceedings
