Description
 
The heart-rending love story of Abelard & Heloise in the Middle Ages  is one of the greatest love stories of all time, famous through the letters they sent each other. For a long time, the only letters known to have survived dated from the later period of their separation, Then, a few years ago, 113 new letters between the pair were found. These fresh missives provide an intriguing snapshot of the coupleís clandestine passion that is erotic & poignant. This new book results in a more complex biography: one that paints a fuller picture of Heloise as a woman who tested the cultural constraints of her time. Addresses Abelardís theological disputes with other teachers, including Bernard of Clairvaux, which led to Abelardís eventual trial for heresy. Illus.
