Abelard and Heloise

3.75 of 5 stars 3.75  ·  rating details  ·  32 ratings  ·  2 reviews
This is an introduction to the lives and thought of two of the most controversial personalities of the Middle Ages - Abelard and Heloise. It is their star quality, argues Constant Mews, that has prevented them from being seen clearly in the context of 12th-century thought - that task he has set himself in this book.
Paperback, 328 pages
Published January 1st 2005 by Oxford University Press, USA (first published June 15th 2004)
