GANADORA DEL PREMIO WEEKENDAVISEN («Una novela histórica genuinamente original»), fenómeno de ventas en Dinamarca e Italia: «Una obra monumental sobre la mujer más famosa de la Europa del siglo XII» (Adresseavisen). «Un libro excepcional e intenso: una desgarradora experiencia de lectura. Una gran novela.» –VÃ¥rt Land (Noruega) Hildegarda de Bingen nace en Bermersheim, en el sur de Alemania, en 1098. Frágil y enferma, los asistentes al parto vaticinan que no pasará de la noche. Pero sobrevivirá, y este no será más que uno de los hitos de su prodigiosa existencia. Desde pequeña tuvo visiones, y a los diez años la recluyeron en un convento. Además de ser poeta, compositora, bióloga y mística, inventó la medicina natural y la cerveza tal como se fabrica hoy, y fue la primera persona en escribir sobre el orgasmo femenino. Esta monja de alta cuna a la que sus miles de seguidores apodarían la Sibila del Rin estuvo al frente del monasterio de Bingen; creó una orden de religiosas vestidas de blanco y sin velo, que durante las oraciones bailaban en círculos con flores en el pelo; se codeó con la nobleza, y arriesgó su vida desafiando a la Iglesia y hasta al emperador Barbarroja. Anne Lise Marstrand-Jørgensen ha escrito una premiada novela biográfica, monumental y conmovedora, sobre una mujer que los historiadores equiparan a san Agustín o Leonardo da Vinci, «una de las grandes heroínas de la Historia, cuyo legado iniciaría la expresión feminista más prematura. […] Fue un fenómeno irrepetible, de los casi inexistentes que no terminaron en la hoguera» (Eugenia Miras, ABC). ENGLISH DESCRIPTION WEEKENDAVISEN AWARD WINNER “A genuinely original historical novel,” bestselling phenomenon in Denmark and in Italy: “A monumental work about the most famous woman in 12th-century Europe” (Adresseavisen). “An exceptional and intense book: a harrowing reading experience. A great novel.” VÃ¥rt Land (Norway) Hildegard of Bingen was born in Bermershein, in southern Germany, in 1098. Frail and ill, those attending the delivery predict that she will not last through the night. But she will survive, and this will become one of the milestones of her prodigious existence. Since she was little, she had visions, and at the age of ten she was confined in a convent. In addition to being a poet, composer, biologist, and mystic, she made natural medicine and beer as it’s made today, and she was the first person to write about the female orgasm. This nun of high birth, whom thousands of her followers would nickname the Sibyl of the Rhine, was in charge of the monastery of Bingen; she created an order of nuns dressed in white and without a veil, who, during prayers, danced in circles with flowers in their hair, she rubbed shoulders with nobility, and she risked her life defying the Church and even Emperor Barbarossa. Anne Lise Marstrand-Jørgensen has written an award-winning, monumental and moving biographical novel about a woman that historians equate to Saint Augustine or Leonardo da Vinci, “one of the great heroines of history, whose legacy would initiate the earliest feminist expression […] It was an unrepeatable phenomenon, one of the almost non-existent ones that did not end up at the stake” (Eugenia Miras, ABC). show more
