Item Description...
Heloise, the twelfth-century French abbess and reformer, emerges from this book as one of history's most extraordinary women, a thinker-writer of profound insight and skill. Her learned mind attracted the most radical philosopher of her time, Peter Abelard. He became her teacher, lover, husband, and finally monastic ally. That relationship has made her fame until now. But Heloise is far more important in her own right. Seventeen experts of international standing collaborate here to reveal and analyze how Heloise's daring achievements shaped normative issues of theology, rhetoric, rational argument, gender, and emotional authenticity. At last we are able to see her for herself, in her moment of history and human awareness.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Cutting-edge Scholarship  Jul 14, 2000
Anyone who has ever read Abelard's Historia calamitatum and the Letters of Abelard and Heloise will be very interested in this collection of fifteen essays on Heloise (a.d. ?1101-1163/64?), Abbess of the Paraclete. My favorite is "Authenticity Revisited" by John Marenbon, which is a breath of fresh air in "one of the longest-running controversies in medieval scholarship". Marenbon and most - but not all - of the scholars who contributed to this book believe that Heloise did indeed write the famous letters which bear her name. Two essays, by Constant J. Mews and John O. Ward and Neville Chiavaroli, examine a newly re-evaluated series of letters which may well be love letters exchanged by Abelard and Heloise before their ill-fated marriage! Most of the other essays fall into the category of literary criticism, several from a feminist perspective, but the opening essay, by historian Mary Martin McLauglin, tells us more about "Heloise the Abbess: The Expansion of the Paraclete".
