Summary
"By examining the significant lives, works, and movements associated with love, this enlightening little book contributes valuable insights into one of history's most inexhaustible and timeless topics. From the theological and philosophical texts of figures such as Augustine, Luther, and Feuerbach to intellectual movements like romanticism and tragic historic figures like Abelard and Heloise, this book propels the reader across 3,000 years of the idea of love."--BOOK JACKET
