I don't believe that Hildegard of Bingen occupied herself in "conlanging."
This is probably a misnomer. Hildegard was involved instead with
glossalalia, or speaking in tongues--something a little different from
the deliberate invention of languages.
Mr. Book: "Shut it down!"
Christof: "Cue the sun!"
