Heloise and Abelard

Etienne Gilson
Recounts the most famous love story of the Middle Ages


Every age retells the story of Héloïse, the convent-bred girl, and Abélard, one of the great Catholic scholars of his age.

Here, Etienne Gilson interprets the story for our time. He takes the point of view of the lovers themselves, and creates for us two very human people, caught between the demands of the flesh and soul, haunted by the double ideal of Roman and Christian greatness.
