An enthusiastic and daring thinker relates a spellbinding story of his philosophical and spiritual enlightenment — and the tale of his tragic personal life as well. Peter Abélard paints an absorbing portrait of monastic and scholastic life in 12th-century Paris and recounts one of history's most famous love stories, his doomed romance with Heloise.
