Atlantic Starr mashup

Abaelardus and Héloïse in a 14th century Roman de la Rose. Abelard was Heloise's tutor. The two had an illicit affair, and Heloise bore a son. Heloise's uncle, her guardian, had Abelard castrated. Abelard became a monk, Heloise a prioress, but the two continued to write love letters.
