It does so in terms of the "story of origin" as It comes to expression within the Latin Christian world of the twelfth century in schooled creation poems and in contrast to the thematization of creation in the contemporary monastic discourse of Hildegard of Bingen and the scholastic thematizations of the next century represented by Thomas Aquinas.
