Abelard and Heloise (Prerecorded)
The tale of Abelard and Heloise is fraught with doom and pathos. A successful, though controversial teacher, Abelard was also the tutor of the beautiful Heloise, with whom he fell in love. They became passionate lovers, but when her family became aware of the affair, they took out a terrible vengeance on Abelard, causing a huge humiliating scandal. In the aftermath, though separated, the couple corresponded. Join historian Wil McCorquodale to explore this tragic tale and the ways in which Abelard tried to redeem himself while also making an important contribution to medieval thought. Heloise, in her own right, also found her way in a new but lonelier life.
