Overview

This is a brief, accessible introduction to the lives and though of two of the most controversial personalities of the Middle Ages. Their names are familiar, but it is their "star quality" argues Mews, that has prevented them from being seen clearly in the context of 12th-century thought—the task he has set himself in this book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Mews argues convincingly that Heloise was not merely an apt pupil but an intelletual peer who changed Abelard's thinking, particularly in ethics."—CHOICE

"Mews shows that Heloise and Abelard's literary partnership went far beyond love letters.... Mews has done us a great service in examining Heloise not just as a lover but as a writer, liturgical collabortaor, and theological thinker in her own right."—Books&Culture

"A beautifully detailed historical account of the two figures." —Speculum
