Cosmos and Creation in the Twelfth Century

February 17 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

COSMOS AND CREATION IN THE TWELFTH CENTURY

Hildegard’s model of the universe, a full-dome digital presentation with music, created by Christian Jara and Margot Fassler, with a soundtrack by musicians from the Notre Dame Program in Sacred Music

Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) was a German nun, a prophet who wrote theological treatises, sermons, nearly 400 letters, poetry and drama; she composed music, and designed art works. She was a scientist too, and had great interest in the cosmos, its creation, and its meanings as a work of divine inspiration. Our model is based primarily on two paintings from her treatise Scivias; the music is taken from chants by Hildegard, the poetic texts relating to her vision of the cosmos as it was created and spins in time toward its end.
