Dear All,

St Hildegard of Bingen is commonly quoted as being the first person 
to describe hopped beer in Physica, her 1179 encyclopaedic book.  But 
what did she write exactly?  I can't find any of her naturalist work, 
though there's plenty of books devoted to her spiritual outpourings.  
Does anyone have a version (in Latin or modern English?).

With thanks in advance,
