The Spiritual Friendship of Henry Suso and Elsbeth Stagel
Friendship in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Age
Although it seems that erotic love generally was the prevailing topic in the medieval world and the Early Modern Age, parallel to this the Ciceronian ideal of friendship also dominated the public discourse. This title explores the functions and the character of friendship from Late Antiquity (Augustine) to the 17th century.
