  • Title: The Green Man in Hildegard of Bingen [In his analysis of the "Liber Divinorum Operum" ("Book of Divine Works"), the author argues that Hildegard's concept of "viriditas" plays a central role in her cosmology. Roughly equivalent to "greenness," the term refers to the creative force behind everything in the world; it sustains and reflects the salvific work that both men and women perform.
