The letters of Abelard and Heloise by Peter Abelard( Book )

38 editions published between 1773 and 2015 in English and Latin and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of the relationship between Abelard and Heloise is told through the letters of Peter Abelard, a French philosopher and one of the greatest logicians of the twelfth century, and of his gifted pupil Heloise. Through their impassioned writings unfolds the story of a romance, from its reckless, ecstatic beginnings through to public scandal, an enforced marriage and its devastating consequences. They also offer insight into religious life in the Middle Ages. This is the revised edition of Betty Radice's translation, in which Michael Clanchy, the biographer of Abelard, updates the scholarship on the letters and the lovers. This volume includes Abelard's autobiography and his spiritual advice to Heloise and her nuns, as well as a selection of the 'lost love letters' of Abelard and Heloise, letters between Heloise and Peter the Venerable, two of Abelard's hymns, a chronology, notes and maps

They have also given rise to huge disagreements over their historical content and significance. The collection opens with an autobiography which contains the story of the calamities that followed Abelard's successes - his castration, his condemnation for heresy, and the unhappiness of the couple's separation. Heloise's letters show an exceptional outpouring of grief and bitter recrimination. Yet the correspondence closes with thoroughly serious, scholarly, and original enquiries into the origins and development of pagan, Jewish, and Christian ideals of religious life both male and female. It constitutes a fundamental source for discussion and debate about important features of thought and religion in the Middle Ages. A new critical edition based on all the manuscripts has long been needed. Its appearance here with a facing English translation, a full introduction, extensive annotation taking into account recent scholarship, and detailed indexes will enable all kinds of readers to enjoy the letters and to join the debates which they always stir
