Title : Oblation or Enclosure: Reflections on Hildegard of Bingen's Entry into Religion [the author argues that Hildegard was both an oblate (offered to the monastery as a young child) and an anchoress (enclosed with Jutta for several years); the author points out that enclosure was not irrevocable nor did it necessarily mean that Hildegard could not exit the cell attached to the male monastery].
