Guibert of Nogent: Portrait of a Medieval Mind
Routledge, 2013 M05 13 - 352 pages
This is a well written and valuable study of the life of a familiar but still somehow shadowy figure and an important contribution to medieval intellectual history, with insights into the meaning of the twelfth-century renaissance, the monastic mindset, the invention of psychological thought, the birth of the university, and the historiography of the Crusades.
