"Lucca Codex" exhibited at the state library of Lucca (Tuscany)

In her master work "Liber Divinorum Operum", Hildegard describes the human being as a microcosm where the complexity and sublime beauty of body and mind reflect the intrinsic regularities of nature. This so-called "Lucca Codex" includes a series of full-page illustrations which portray the oneness of nature, cosmos and mankind through "visions" of intense colors. Miniature pictures in the left and right corners show Hildegard working on her writings.
