Abstract:

When I announced in the calendar of the Collège de France for the year 1936-37 a course of lectures on The Medieval Origins of Humanism, it was not difficult to foresee that I should have to deal with Abélard. This indeed is what happened. On the other hand, I was very far from realizing that I should have to devote quite as much attention to Héloïse as to Abélard himself, and that, once entered into their story, I should find it very difficult to leave off, not only because it is, indeed, so fascinating in itself, but because it is a kind of touchstone serving to test and evaluate the various definitions of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance which turn up from time to time. -- Introduction.
