Hildegard von Bingen and Pedophilia

Arrested Catholic Archbishop's computer contained over 100,000 images of children

 

“Wesolowski is the first Vatican official to be arrested within the city state on charges of pedophilia.” Needless to say, I am happy that this man has been arrested.

Anytime I read a story like this, I think of Hildegard von Bingen’s vision of the Birth of the Antichrist as depicted below.┬áThe female figure on the left represents The Church and the Antichrist is born of her.

Birth of the Antichrist

But I keep remembering the image differently and perhaps tellingly. I keep remembering it as the Church having genitalia that had become a devouring monster.
