The lost love letters of Heloise and Abelard : perceptions of dialogue in twelfth-century France by C. J Mews( Book )

29 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and French and held by 827 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Constant Mews examines a collection of Latin love letters preserved in a fifteenth-century manuscript of Clairvaux, edited by Ewald Konsgen in 1974 under the title The Letters of Two Lovers. He argues that it records 113 love letters exchanged by Heloise and Abelard at the time of their love affair
Abelard and Heloise by C. J Mews( Book )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 578 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
Petri Abaelardi Opera theologica by Peter Abelard( Book )

32 editions published between 1969 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Petrus Abaelardus (1079-1142), berühmt durch seine Liebes- und Leidensgeschichte mit Heloise, die er in seinem autobiographischen Werk "Historia calamitatum" niederschrieb, zählte zu den angesehensten Gelehrten seiner Zeit. Brilliant als Philosoph und Theologe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Scholastik, indem er theologische Sachverhalte durch sprachlogische Überlegungen zu erhellen suchte. Abaelards Ethik wird hier in neuer deutscher Übersetzung präsentiert. Der kritische Text beruht ebenfalls auf einer neuen Kollation der Handschriften und Analyse der Überlieferung. In dieser bedeutsamen Schrift legt Abaelard die Prinzipien seiner intentionalen Ethik dar. Damit liegt nach dem Römerbriefkommentar nun das zweite wichtige Werk dieses berühmten Philosophen und Theologen des 12. Jahrhunderts in den "Fontes Christiani" vor
Listen daughter : the Speculum virginum and the formation of religious women in the Middle Ages( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 356 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

Virtue ethics for women 1250-1500 by Karen Green( Book )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 66 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
