Hilda of Whitby


Hilda of Whitby

by Suzanne Schleck

“By definition, painting an icon is an encounter with the Spirit of God, often as manifested in the lives of his saints. This is necessarily an experience of growth. The icon of Hilda of Whitby is an encounter with a woman of unity and wisdom, who lived in a time of turmoil in the church.” – Suzanne Schleck

As seen in: Saints & Family, a collaborative exhibition between the Communications Department of the Episcopal Church and Episcopal Church & Visual Arts.

November 18 – Hilda of Whitby (c. 614 – November 17, 680), Abbess
