Welcome to the Season 11 Premiere of Accessible Art History: The Podcast! This season, I'm covering the lives and works of ten extraordinary women. To start things off, I'm discussing the life and works of St. Hildegard of Bingen. She was a mystic and artist who was one of the most important spiritual leaders of her day.
