Books By Author Dr Constant J. Mews

Abelard and Heloise by Dr Constant J. Mews Abelard and Heloise, Paperback (January 2005)

Presents a brief introduction to the lives and thought of two of the most controversial personalities of the Middle Ages. Abelard and Heloise are familiar names. It is their "star quality," argues the author, that has prevented them from being seen clearly in the context of 12th-century thought - that task he has set himself in this book.

Listen Daughter by Dr Constant J. Mews Listen Daughter, Hardback (February 2002)

The 12th century was a period of dramatic growth in the involvement of women in various forms of religious life. This volume examines new ways in which religious life for women was conceived by men as well as interpreted in practice by women within a society firmly patriarchal in character.
