St. Gertrude (1256-1301).  Born at Eisleben in Thuringia, as a girl she was brought up by Cistercian nuns and did well at her studies, especially philosophy and the humanities.  She gave herself to God, and progressed in a wonderful manner along the paths of perfection, spending much time in prayer and contemplation.
