MEDIA REVIEWS

"Juanita Feros Ruys's study is massively learned and erudite. Peter Abelard is reintroduced to medievalists as a figure beyond the heady days of his public life and Ruys sheds new and important light on other dimensions of this complex and fascinating personality. The text produced by Ruys is noteworthy and stands without antecedent or peer both for originality and interpretation. ... The study is supplemented by an international, up-to-date bibliography." (Thomas A. Fudge, Parergon, Vol. 32 (2), 2015)
