becauseofthiswoman:

Name: Hildegard von BingenDates: (1098-1179)Why she rocks: She was a nun who produced major works of theology and visionary writings. She is one of the few identifiable female artists of the medieval period, and the only known composer of Gregorian chant (one of the first true forms of organized music). She ran her own convent, and published several books about natural history and science.Quote: “A human being is a vessel that God has built for himself and filled with his inspiration so that his works are perfected in it.”
Because of this woman… there was more acceptance for women to publish their findings on science, art, and literature during the medieval period.
