The letters of Heloise and Abelard are one of the great romantic and intellectual documents of human civilization, while the writers themselves are second only to Romeo and Juliet in the fame accrued by tragic lovers. Living in the abbey of the Paraclete in twelfth-century France, the two poured their hearts and minds out to each other in a series of letters. These letters are notable for their intelligence, insight, and philosophy and make clear the reason Heloise and Abelard's story has resounded for centuries. Here, for the first time, is their collected correspondence with accessible commentary from two of our foremost medieval scholars. This book is a necessity for anyone interested in the medieval period or in these two touching and unforgettable figures.
