Miniature pictures of the Lucca Codex

Eight miniature pictures are included in the full-page illustrations of Hildegard's last book "Liber Divinorum Operum" (1163-1170), the so-called "Lucca Codex", which is kept at the state library of Lucca/Tuscany (Italy). These miniature pictures show Hildegard von Bingen as she works on her famous writings at cloister Rupertsberg, supported by her noble disciple Richardis von Stade and friar Vollmar.
