A description of the experience

Hildegard of Bingen from The Vita 1098-1117 – Vision One Book II

 ………But then three great stars, crowding together in their brilliance, appeared in the darkness and then many others, both small and large, shining with great splendour and then a gigantic star, radiant with wonderful brightness which shot its rays towards the flame.  And in the earth too appeared a radiance like the dawn, into which the flame was miraculously absorbed without being separate from the blazing fire……..
