Hildegard Von Bingen Liber divinorum operum – 2nd Vision

“And then a wonderfully looking wheel appeared right in the chest of the figure I mentioned above, and that I had viewed in the southern air. 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 together. 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 clouds 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 other spheres while the one with the moist air dampened all the other ones with its moisture.”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”. The six circular spheres describe the 22°-halo and the space inside the 22°-halo. So there is only one type of halo described.Circle of bright air; white outer rim of the 22°-haloCircle of black fire: red inner rim of the 22°-haloCircle of pure ether: Outer part of the space surrounded by the 22°-haloCircle of moist air: Space inside the 22°-haloCircle of strong white and clear air: Bright area around the sunThin layer of air: carrier of clouds
