To most people it would have seemed like an obscure article in an obscure academic journal. To author P.J. Parsons, it was a challenge. The article called into question the authorship of music attributed to twelfth century mystic Hildegard of Bingen.
This is the story of two women, Hildegard and her childhood friend Lysanor of Rupertsberg, both ahead of their time in many ways. Hildegard becomes a twenty-first century saint and icon. The other is but a grace note – an embellishment of secondary importance. But their lives intertwine in ways that challenge both of them, taking them into experiences they could never have imagined. And both, in their own ways, have left a legacy to the generations that followed. This is Lysanor’s own story about her life – and the life of her friend, the mystic.
