 A - Abélard


Abélard: Peter Abélard, 1079-1142, philosopher and theologian, writer of Sic et Non, Scito Teipsum and Historia Calamitatum.

The last is his side of the story of his affair with the much younger Héloise, some of whose passionate and lively letters to him are also known, and which ended with Abélards castration.
