The Repentant Abelard is both an innovative study and English translation of the late poetic works of controversial medieval philosopher and logician Peter Abelard, written for his beloved wife Heloise and son Astralabe. This study brings to life long overlooked works of this great thinker with analyses and comprehensive notes.

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)

This important book shows how questioning the meaning of family might lead to a new understanding of human connections between men and women, brothers and sisters, or parents and children, about what bound them and how they dealt with loss, transforming grief into songs that reflected somehow the utterly ordinariness of being human. (Babette Hellemans, Speculum, Vol. 94 (2), April, 2019)


Juanita Feros Ruys is a Senior Research Fellow and Director of the Sydney Node of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions at the University of Sydney, Australia. Her areas of expertise include the writings of Abelard and Heloise, medieval Latinate women's writings, medieval and early modern didactic literature, and high medieval demonology.
