About the Author:

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. New Revelations about One of the Greatest Romances in History Peter Abelard was arguably the greatest poet, philosopher, and religious teacher in all of twelfth-century Europe. In an age when women were rarely educated, Heloise was his most gifted young student. Their private tutoring sessions inevitably turned to passion, and their moments apart were spent writing love letters. Astoundingly, a few years ago a young scholar identified 113 new love letters between the pair which, combined with the latest scholarship, present us with the richest telling yet of the couple s clandestine passion -- a story that is erotic, poignant, and at times even funny.
