What People are Saying About This

Nicholas Vincent

The Clerical Dilemma is a thoughtful and thought-provoking study of Peter of Blois's letters and some of his treatises. There is nothing quite like it in recent years among the existing literature on Peter. It represents a major step towards reinstating the study of those secular clergy into the mainstream of our understanding of the twelfth-century ecclesiastical culture. (Nicholas Vincent, professor of medieval history, University of East Anglia)

Hugh Thomas

This work will thoroughly revise the way scholars view Peter of Blois and thereby provide important contributions to our understanding of the twelfth-century Renaissance. By studying Peter in his proper context as a secular cleric, Cotts helps to shift our understanding of twelfth-century intellectual and spiritual life. (Hugh Thomas, professor of history, University of Miami)
