great introduction .. but too brief

this was a very brief introduction to the significance and work of Hildegard of Bingen. come to think about it , I got a lot from this hour and a half audio :her background , the overall atmosphere during her time , main challenges she faced and her contribution to music . I would have liked to know more about her contribution to medicine and alternative healing
I definitely recommend checking this out if the topic of women and religion interests you.
