Collationes by Peter Abelard( Book )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and Latin and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Peter Abelard (1079-1142) is widely recognized as one of the most important writers of the twelfth century, famed for his skill in logic as well as for his romance with Heloise. Even among Abelard's writings, the Collationes - or Dialogue between a Christian, a Philosopher, and a Jew - are remarkable for their daring and intellectual imaginativeness. Written probably c.1130, the work contains the fullest exposition of many aspects of Abelard's ethics, the only statement of his unusual eschatological theory, and some of his most interesting ideas about faith and the relationship between theism and revealed religion." "This is the first full critical edition of the Collationes. Based on an entirely new collation of the manuscripts, it provides a facing-page English translation, detailed notes, and an extensive historical and philosophical introduction."--Jacket
Historia calamitatum by Peter Abelard( Book )

88 editions published between 1922 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic of medieval literature, a brilliant and daring thinker relates the spellbinding story of his philosophical and spiritual enlightenment--and the tale of his tragic personal life as well. Peter Abélard paints an absorbing portrait of monastic and scholastic life in twelfth-century Paris, while also recounting the circumstances and consequences of one of history's most famous love stories--his doomed romance with Heloise.Considered the founder of the University of Paris, Abélard was instrumental in promoting the use of the dialectical method in Western education. He regarded theology as the "handmaiden" of knowledge and believed that through reason, people could attain a greater knowledge of God. "By doubting," he declared, "we come to inquire, and by inquiry we arrive at truth." Abélard's tendency to leave questions open for discussion made him a target for frequent charges of heresy, and all his works were eventually included in the church's Index of Forbidden Books. Unfortunately, Abélard's reputation as a philosopher is often overshadowed by his renown as a lover. In addition to its value as a scholarly treatise, The Story of My Misfortunes offers the rare opportunity to observe a legendary romance from the point of view of one of its participants
Scito te ipsum : [lateinisch-deutsch] = Erkenne dich selbst by Peter Abelard( Book )

54 editions published between 1721 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Petrus Abaelardus (1079#x9C;1142), berühmt durch seine Liebes- und Leidensgeschichte mit Heloise, die er in seinem autobiographischen Werk "Historia calamitatum" niederschrieb, zählte zu den angesehensten Gelehrten seiner Zeit. Brilliant als Philosoph und Theologe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Scholastik, indem er theologische Sachverhalte durch sprachlogische Überlegungen zu erhellen suchte. Abaelards Ethik wird hier in neuer deutscher Übersetzung präsentiert. Der kritische Text beruht ebenfalls auf einer neuen Kollation der Handschriften und Analyse der Überlieferung. In dieser bedeutsamen Schrift legt Abaelard die Prinzipien seiner intentionalen Ethik dar. Damit liegt nach dem Römerbriefkommentar nun das zweite wichtige Werk dieses berühmten Philosophen und Theologen des 12. Jahrhunderts in den "Fontes Christiani" vor

The letters of Heloise and Abelard : a translation of their collected correspondence and related writings by Peter Abelard( Book )

65 editions published between 1718 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"She began their passionate and complex correspondence by calling him " ... her heart's love ..." while he referred to her as " ... the singular joy and only solace of a weary mind." The letters of Heloise and Abelard will remain one of the great, romantic and intellectual documents of human civilization while they, themselves, are probably second only to Romeo and Juliet in the fame accrued by tragic lovers. Living in the abbey of the Paraclete in the12th century, the two poured each others hearts and minds out to each other in a series of letters. Here for the first time in McLaughlin's edition is the complete correspondence with commentary. This book will be a necessity for anyone interested in the medieval period and for those interested in these two touchingly unforgettable figures from the distant past. This book is a companion volume to McLaughlin's study of Heloise, Heloise and the Paraclete."--Jacket
