about

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.

John F. Benton was the Doris and Henry Dreyfuss Professor of History, at the California Institute of Technology.

From Our Editors

Self and Society in Medieval France is an annotated edition of the memoirs of Abbot Guibert of Nogent, a Benedictine monk and historiographer. Though Guibert is best known for his account of the First Crusade, his Memoirs are also interesting and insightful. In chronicling his own life, he also records valuable information on French culture and events of his time.
