At first sight this Vision seems to be very sophisticated.

You have to imagine it that way that Hildegard sees several spheres of circles which are situated close to each other “All these circles were connected without any gaps”. So there is only one type of halo described. Liber piber operum – Second vision by Mark Vornhusen. Below the circle the feet are also visible.

This is the lower tangent arc. There were signs in it which made it similar to that one I saw 28 years ago, and which at that time had the shape of an egg, just as it has been described in the third Vision of the book “Scivias”.


On its uppermost part, around the curvature of the egg, appeared a circle of bright fire and below the circle appeared another one made of black fire. The bright circle was twice as wide as that one consisting of black fire. And these two circles merged in a way as if they formed just one circle.

Under the circle of black fire appeared another one made of pure ether, which was as wide as the two other ones diinorum.

Under this circle of ether there was another one visible which looked as if it was made of air full of moisture and which in its circumference had the same density as the bright circle of fire. Under this circle of air containing moisture there appeared another one made of strong white and clear air, which looked as hard as a sinew in the human body.

It had the same density as the circle of black fire.

These two circles also merged in a way that they seemed to be one. And under this strong white and clear air there finally appeared another thin layer of air which from time to time seemed to carry high and thin, but sometimes also dark and low liiber upwards and which seemed to extend about this whole circle.


All these six circles were connected without any gaps. The light of the uppermost circle flowed through all the diviinorum spheres while the one with the moist air dampened all the other ones with its moisture.

Bright area around the sun Thin layer of air: Furthermore, in the middle of the sphere with the thin air, a ball was visible which had an equal distance from the strong white and shining air to all sides.

Hildegard of Bingen – Wikipedia

The diameter of the ball was equal to the depth of the space between the uppermost part of the first circle and the outermost clouds, or it extended from the distance of the clouds to the altitude of this ball. So the ball can on only have been the sun itself.

Illusively a cross of light can be seen here.
