Description - Guibert of Nogent by Jay Rubenstein

Guibert of Nogent has provided us with much of what we know about life in Europe in the eleventh and twelfth centuries. His autobiography, his crusade chronicle, and his critique of relics create a rich portrait of this vibrant and violent social landscape. His observations range from the philosophical to the personal, encompassing his mother, sexuality, cleanliness and life in a Benedictine monastery. This historical biography challenges many of the long held assumptions about this enigmatic man. It reveals Guibert as one of Europe's most sophisticated early psychological thinkers who led the way in transforming hagiography, biography, historiography and theology.
