From: "Decker, Terry D."

Subject: SC - Hildegard von Bingen (Long)
About 1150, Hildegard von Bingen wrote the first of two books on medicine

and natural philosophy, Physica. This was later followed by Causae et

Curae. The two books together are referred to as the Liber Subtilatum. Any

recipes of interest to the list will probably be found in these two books.


Translations of Hildegard's works are more common in German than English and

her theological texts are more translated than her medical texts. For those

with an interest in pursuing her work, a partial Library of Congress catalog

list of available translations is appended.

Subject: Re: SC - Nerve Bisquits???


On 8/9/98, I was forwarded an e-mail with the noted recipe with this

notation:


"Sound & Spirit Recipe for the Program "The Spirit of Hildegard."
Some information about Hildegard followed, then this:
"In a treatise on medicine, she provides a recipe for spice cookies: 'Eat

them often,' she says, 'and they will calm every bitterness of heart and

mind -- and your hearing and senses will open. Your mind will be joyous,

and your senses purified, and harmful humours will diminish . . ."


The recipe follows; however, it is titled "St. Hildegard's Cookies of Joy,"

with the note: "(Recipe reconstructed and adapted from Hildegard's circa

1157 treatise Physica: Liber Simplicis Medicinae." The note following the

recipe states, "Recipe researched for Sound & Spirit by Jeffrey Nelson with

the help of a gracious doctoral student who wished to remain anonymous."
The recipe given follows:
3/4 cup butter or margarine (1 1/2 sticks)

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp baking powder



1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground cloves
"Let butter soften and then cream it with the brown sugar. Beat in the egg.

Sift the dry ingredients. Add half the dry ingredients and mix. Add the

other half and mix thoroughly. Dough may be chilled to make it workable.

Heat oven to 350 (degrees). Form walnut sized balls of dough, place on

greased and floured cookie sheet and press flat. Bake 12-15 minutes (till

edges of are golden brown.) Cool for 5 minutes, remove from cookie sheet

and finish cooling on racks."

There are apparently several CDs available. Here's a pointer to a



discography of Hildegard von Bingen:
http://music.acu.edu./www/iawm/pages/MedDiscographyHild.html
Amazon.com was not particularly helpful on the music, having only one title

with one piece of her music. If I were seriously looking for the CDs, I

would try stores which deal in religious music or music stores who will do

catalog orders.

I know I wrote this up once a week or so ago, but I guess it never took to

the list. The Physica has been translated into English for the first time by

Priscilla Throop and is available through Healing Arts Press, One Park St,

Rochester, VT 05767. The price is $25.00.

Subject: Re: SC - Nerve Bisquits??? I can't find them in the _Physica_


My copy of the Physica of Hildegard von Bingen arrived form Amazon.com. It

is an interesting book, but I cannot find anything so far that looks at all

like the "Nerve Bisquits" recipe that was posted. None of the index entries

under sugar, and none of the pages that have entries for both nutmeg and

cinnamon, is even close.
There is, under the entry for cumin, an interesting recipe, however:
One who suffers nausea should pulverise cumin with a third as much pepper

and a quarter as much pimpernel. He should mix this powder with pure wheat

flour, and make cookies, with egg yolk and a little water, either in a hot

oven or under hot ashes. He should eat these cookies, as well as the cumin

powder on bread, and it will suppress the hot and cold humors in his

intestines, which cause his nausea. (pp. 19-20).
