Hildegard of Bingen, writes Matthew Fox, was one of the "great creation-centered mystics of the West." This multitalented and prolific abbess of a Benedictine abbey was an influential preacher, healer, scientist, composer, theologian, artist, and poet. She coined the term viriditas, or greening power, connecting it closely with creativity. Here is a selection of her sayings as quoted in Matthew Fox's Original Blessing.
• The Word is living, being, spirit, all verdant greening, all creativity. This Word manifests itself in every creature.
