[Autom. eng. transl.] Western culture for many centuries made it difficult, if not impossible, for women to establish themselves in the intellectual landscape of their time, dominated by choirs of only male voices. The feminine has often had to be content with living in secret, separate spaces. One of these in the Middle Ages was undoubtedly the claustrum, from the walls of which a voice could leak, a look outside. This is the case of the gaze of Hildegard of Bingen, whose feminine genius overcomes the obstacles linked to a social and political system conditioned by heavy misogynistic legacies of Greek-Roman and Jewish origin. A gaze that is not only a gift of the visio, which made her a mystic and a prophetess, but also as an extraordinary ability to read the world through a very particular, genuinely feminine sensitivity.
