Self and Society in Medieval France: The Memoirs of Abbot Guilbert of Nogent
University of Toronto Press
John F. Benton
In its original printing, this edition of the Autobiography was greeted in Saturday Review as 'a treasure-house of information on education, monastic life, and the beginnings of the great medieval towns ...also delightful reading with its mingling of scholarship and superstition, its stories of necromancy and devils, its other-worldliness warring with human weakness.' Originally published by Harper Torchbooks, 1970.
