It is the first encyclopedia that was evidently written by a woman. It was finished in , and was one of the most celebrated illuminated manuscripts of the period. Most of the manuscript was not original, but a compendium of 12th century knowledge. The manuscript contained poems, illustrations, and music, and drew from texts by classical and Arab writers.

Herrad of Landsberg Latin : Herrada Landsbergensis ; c. She was known as the author of the pictorial encyclopedia Hortus deliciarum The Garden of Delights. Born about at the castle of Landsberg , the seat of a noble Alsatian family, she entered Hohenburg Abbey in the Vosges mountains, about fifteen miles from Strasbourg , at an early age. Due to her support from the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick Barbarossa the abbey was extremely successful and powerful, as well as a source for reform. At the abbey Herrad received the most comprehensive education available to women during the 12th century. As she grew older she rose to a high position in office at the abbey, and was soon put in charge of governing and educating her fellow nuns.
