Peter Abelard, Helen Waddell. (Henry Holt and Co, 1933).
Peter Abelard (1079-1142) was a brilliant scholastic philosopher, theologian and logician who ran afoul of major figures in the Church because of his brilliance in debating and his questioning of authority. His love affair with Eloise of Argenteuil is one of the most famous love stories of the Middle Ages. The story unfolds in the context of the powerful theological beliefs of the 11th and 12th centuries, many based on church traditions. Would their story have unfolded differently in a different time with a different theological ethos.
