An extremely fine and rare Meissen cup, cover and stand painted with a gros blue ground and painted with figures of ‘Heloise and Abelard’ from the 12th century philosopher and theologian true love story.
‘Heloise and Abelard’ is one of history’s most passionate and romantic true love stories. The nine hundred year old love affair of the 12th century philosopher and theologian and his student Heloise continues to inspire and move us. Their passionate relationship scandalised the community in which they lived. The details of their physical and spiritual intimacy is also a cautionary tale of our time. There are still societies whose policies result in rigid attitudes of intellectual, theological and sexual repression. This great love story, and the courage and passion of its protagonists, has much to teach us about our own understanding of religious tolerance, sexual equality and intellectual freedom.
