Eleanor of Aquitaine by Bonnie Wheeler

Book Description

Eleanor's patrilineal descent, from a lineage already prestigious enough to have produced an empress in the eleventh century, gave her the lordship of Aquitaine. But marriage re-emphasized her sex which, in the medieval scheme of gender-power relations relegated her to the position of Lady in relation to her Lordly husbands. In this collection, essays provide a context for Eleanor's life and further an evolving understanding of Eleanor's multifaceted career. A valuable collection on the greatest heiress of the medieval period.

Letters of Heloise and Abelard by Bonnie Wheeler Letters of Heloise and Abelard, Paperback (April 2014)

The letters of Heloise and Abelard remain one of the great romantic and intellectual documents of human civilization, while they themselves are second only to Romeo and Juliet in the fame accrued by tragic lovers. Here, collected for the first time, is their correspondence with accessible commentary from two of our foremost medieval scholars.

Mindful Spirit in Late Medieval Literature by Bonnie Wheeler Mindful Spirit in Late Medieval Literature, Hardback (June 2006)

In what varieties of ways is late medieval literature inflected by spiritual insight and desires? What weaves of literary cloth especially suit religious insight? In this collection dedicated to Elizabeth D Kirk, Emeritus Professor of English at Brown University, several renowned scholars assess related issues in a range of Medieval texts.

Violent Passions by Bonnie Wheeler Violent Passions, Hardback (September 2005)

This book re-evaluates the perception of "courtly love" in Old French verse. Adams traces how these verses explore the emotional trials of amour and propose coping methods for the lovelorn.

Joan of Arc and Spirituality by Bonnie Wheeler Joan of Arc and Spirituality, Hardback (January 2004)

The various trial records provide evidence about how Joan of Arc and others understood her spiritual life. This book explores multiple facets of Joan's prayerful life. Two thirds of the essays focus on Joan in her own time; the later chapters study Joan's formative influence upon modern women.
