Abelard and Heloise by C. J Mews( )

27 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A brief, accessible introduction to the lives and thought of two of the most controversial personalities of the Middle Ages. Abelard and Heloise are familiar names. It is their "star quality," argues Constant Mews, that has prevented them from being seen clearly in the context of 12th-century thought - that task he has set himself in this book. He contends that the dramatic intensity of these famous lives needs to be examined in the broader context of their shared commitment to the study of philosophy
The lost love letters of Heloise and Abelard : perceptions of dialogue in twelfth-century France by C. J Mews( Book )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mews provides an indepth analysis of the debate concerning the authenticity of the letters and looks at the way in which the relationship between Heloise and Abelard has been perceived over the centuries. He explores the political, literary, and religious contexts in which the two figures conducted their affair, and offers new insights into Heloise as an astonishingly gifted writer whose literary gifts were only revealed in the course of her relationship with her teacher. The complete Latin text of the love letters as edited by Konsgen is reproduced in the volume, along with an annotated translation by Neville Chiavaroli and Constant J
Virtue ethics for women 1250-1500 by Karen Green( )

10 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book locates Christine de Pizan's argument that women are virtuous members of the political community within the context of earlier discussions of the relative virtues of men and women. It is the first to explore how women were represented and addressed within medieval discussions of the virtues. It introduces readers to the little studied Speculum Dominarum (Mirror of Ladies), a mirror for a princess, compiled for Jeanne of Navarre, which circulated in the courtly milieu that nurtured Christine.Throwing new light on the way in which Medieval women understood the virtues, and were represented by others as virtuous subjects, itpositions the ethical ideas of Anne of France, Laura Cereta, Marguerite of Navarre and the Dames de la Roche within an evolving discourse on the virtues that is marked by the transition from Medieval to Renaissance thought. Virtue Ethics for Women 1250-1500 will be of interest to those studying virtue ethics, the history of women's ideas and Medieval and Renaissance thought in general
Listen daughter : the Speculum virginum and the formation of religious women in the Middle Ages( Book )

11 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The words "Listen daughter" (Audi filia, from Psalm 44) were frequently used in exhortations to religious women in the 12th century, a period of dramatic growth in the involvement of women in various forms of religious life. This volume looks at the "Mirror for Virgins" (Speculum Virginum), an illustrated dialogue between a nun and her spiritual mentor written by a monk not long before Hildegard of Bingen started to record her visions. An appendix provides the first English translation, by Barbara Newman, of significant excerpts from the Speculum

La voix d'Héloïse : un dialogue de deux amants by C. J Mews( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"De la magnifique histoire d'amour qui a uni puis séparé Héloïse et Abélard, on avait pris l'habitude de la version qu'en donne le philosophe. Ce livre souligne plus distinctement l'autre versant du dialogue : il fait entendre plus distinctement la voix d'Héloïse. Son auteur, Constant J. Mews, y conduit une enquête minutieuse, qui examine une série de lettres d'amour copiées à Clairvaux par un moine du XVe siècle, Johannes de Vepria. Editées en 1974 (et traduites intégralement en français dans un ouvrage paraissant en même temps que ce livre), les lettres ici étudiées sont un témoin inestimable de la forme que pouvait prendre un dialogue épistolaire entre deux amants dans la France du XIIe siècle : on y apprend combien pareil événement littéraire révèle en profondeur l'histoire culturelle et politique tourmentée de cette époque (cf. 4e de couv.)
