I think the next show or so that I do will be on Saint Hildegard... she was, perhaps, the greatest herbalist of all time. He medicine described bacteria and viruses centuries before people could see them with microscopes. She was a profound visionary, writing books on theology and nature, musical composer, artist, gardener and healer. There is no human way that the knowledge she had over 800 years ago was humanly possible.... although she had access to the Benedictine herbals and botanical libraries, etc... what she wrote simply was not known by humanity at the time... and we are centuries from catching up! I have books written about her and her medicine, as well as, her composition Physica. I have been unable to find an English translation of Causae et Curae. Does anyone know how I can buy one or have a .pdf to share? I can read Latin, but not well enough to feel comfortable with something this deep and important.
