‘Caritas Abundat’ (‘Love Abounds’) Hildegard of Bingen — Catholic Coloring Page

PDF page one  –  PDF page two

Here’s something a bit different — a set of calligraphy coloring pages. The text is an English translation of the words of an antiphon written by Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th-century Benedictine abbess, polymath, Christian mystic, and recently-canonized Saint and the fourth female Doctor of the Church. (Amazing right?!)

I got my translation from this book, based on the edition by Pudentiana Barth, M. Immaculata  Ritscher and Joseph Schmidt-Gorg, Hildegard von Bingen. Lieder (Saltzburg, 1969).

Here at the International Society of Hildegard von Bingen Studies you can find a wealth of information about this chant, the Latin text and a transcription of the melody, as well as everything about St. Hildegard herself.

Feel free to print copies of these coloring pages for your kids, class, or self… just please don’t repost it on the internet, remove my name, sell, etc.🙂

Link to this page, and give credit if you post your colored version, thanks!
