Off the radar: Hildegard of Bingen

This story fits into the Viking Age. Just. And it’s not exactly about Vikings, but it’s such a good story about a medieval manuscript that I wanted to share. On The Conversation is a tale of how Hildegard of Bingen’s Riesencodex (c. 1200) was returned to its original home in Wiesbaden after the WW 2. A true story of courage, wit, and nerves of steel. This is magical stuff for a brilliant screenplay, if you ask me.
