    Trout is very knowledgeable
    comes from hanging with Agnes
    Agnes got it from hanging with the principal
    The principal got her doctorate studying the psyche of Agnes
    They all benefit

    I have not laughed so hard in years! Let’s just say I’m no Hildegard, and leave it at that!

    from Wikipedia —
    Saint Hildegard of Bingen, O.S.B. (German: Hildegard von Bingen; Latin: Hildegardis Bingensis) (1098 – 17 September 1179), also known as Saint Hildegard, and Sibyl of the Rhine, was a German writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, Benedictine abbess, visionary, and polymath.1 Elected a magistra by her fellow nuns in 1136, she founded the monasteries of Rupertsberg in 1150 and Eibingen in 1165. One of her works as a composer, the Ordo Virtutum, is an early example of liturgical drama and arguably the oldest surviving morality play.2
    She wrote theological, botanical and medicinal texts, as well as letters, liturgical songs, and poems, while supervising miniature illuminations in the Rupertsberg manuscript of her first work, Scivias.3

    Agnes has some big shoes to fill.

    Nice to see that the girls read. Probably in the library at school.

    St. Hildegard von Bingen has recently been named a Doctor of the Church. Only 35 Doctors have been proclaimed, and Hildegard is only the 4th woman to be proclaimed a Doctor.

    Saint Hildegard was a Renaissance woman before the Renaissance .

    Good thing Agnes has big feet – because those are powerful big shoes to fill.

    A better word for St. HIldegard would be polymath.
