Historia Calamitatum: The Story of My Misfortunes (Illustrated) by [Peter Abelard]

I know how I’m supposed to feel about this great classic of medieval literature. There should be some sympathy for the sufferings of Abelard, as well as mooning over the great love of his life, Heloise. In fact, it’s just another case of a man who couldn’t keep it in his pants, or tunic as the case may be.
