    1. Pierre Abélard was a well-known philosopher, theologian, poet and musician of the early 12th century and the love affair between Abélard and Héloïse is probably the most famous one in history. George Moore’s Héloïse and Abélard is the story of the lives of Pierre Abélard and Héloïse before they started their well-known, and famous, correspondence. In this exceptional novel, the fictional story was obviously based on facts about Pierre Abélard and Héloïse that George Moore was able [...]

    2. Heloise and Abelard is a well documented, real, forbidden romance that occurred in the Middle Ages. The letters between Heloise and Abelard were discovered, hidden in the wall of an ancient church. Their story remains a "lesson" taught to men studying to be a monks, and is a part of the Catholic Church's historical record."True" history at it's best. This is a classic story of a forbidden love with tragic consequences.

    3. The book was on 14 cassette sides, so the review got lowered as I got tired. There really was too much repetitious detail when a briefer summary would have worked. On the other hand, the chronology of the lives of both Heloise (especially) and Abelard was very complete. For a book of renowned lovers, there was more selfishness than love shown in their relationship I thought. Interesting descriptions of life in a nunnery and the sadness of the Children's Crusade.
