In Extremis

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

A new spirit of philosophical and religious enquiry is growing in 12th-century France. In its vanguard is the brilliant Peter Abelard. When he starts an affair with his student Heloise, his conservative enemies find just the pretext they need to discredit him. In so doing they start a war of ideas that can only involve that arch-priest of medieval mysticism and austerity, Bernard of Clairvaux.

A second chance to see Howard Brenton's critically acclaimed exploration of the greatest love story of the middle ages.
