In this beautiful holy card, we have St. Hildegard of Bingen receiving visions from the Holy Spirit. She wrote and illustrated them in her Scivias. The harp is shown because besides a writer, she was also a great composer of music. The lilies in Christian art usually mean faith and chastity, but in this case they also indicate that she was a great botanist. The Latin at the bottom translates to "The Splendor of the Holy Spirit is Illustrated by All the Ways of Revelation"

St. Hildegard was a prophet. She was also a Benedictine abbess, writer, poet, botanist, and composer who lived an astonishing life in 12th-century Germany. She had numerous prophetic and mystical visions during her lifetime and is reported to have been a miracle worker. She advised Popes. Her art and music are still enjoyed and admired today. She has recently been canonized and made a Doctor of the Church.

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
- Above story of the art
- Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
