Title : Philip Count of Flanders and Hildegard of Bingen: Crusading against the Saracens or Crusading against Deadly Sin? [The Count wrote to Hildegard for her prophetic advice on his imminent departure for the Crusades. The mission had been imposed as penance for his brutal execution of a man believed to be his wife's lover and other ill-judged actions. Hildegard in her reply ignored political and military concerns and urged him to purge his heart of sin. Latin texts of the two letters are appended. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
