God and the goddesses : vision, poetry, and belief in the Middle Ages by Barbara Newman( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"God and the Goddesses is a study medieval imaginative theology, examining the numerous daughters of God who appear in allegorical poems, theological fictions, and the visions of holy women. We have tended to understand these deities as mere personifications and poetic figures, but that, Barbara Newman contends, is a mistake. These goddesses are neither pagan survival nor versions of the Great Goddess constructed in archetypal psychology, but distinctive creations of the Christian imagination."--Jacket
Vision : the life and music of Hildegard von Bingen by Barbara Newman( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hildegard von Bingen lived in Germany's Rhineland valley during most of the twelfth century (1098-1179). Besides being the abbess of a large and prosperous Benedictine abbey, she was a prominent writer, preacher, healer, poet, and composer who wrote nine books on theology, medicine, science, and physiology. Hildegard has been called the first medieval woman to reflect on and write about women. At the age of forty-two, HIldegard began to describe the mystical visions that she had experienced throughout her life, and in so doing she shared her theology with the world. As Matthew Fox has said, "If Hildegard had been a man, she would be well known as one of the greatest artists and intellectuals the world has ever seen."
Medieval crossover : reading the secular against the sacred by Barbara Newman( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Newman explores a wealth of case studies in French, English, and Latin texts that concentrate on instances of paradox, collision, and convergence. She convincingly and with great clarity demonstrates the widespread applicability of the crossover concept as an analytical tool, examining some very disparate works. Some of these texts are scarcely known to medievalists; others are rarely studied together. Newman's choice of primary works will inspire new questions and set in motion new fields of exploration for medievalists
