Review quote

"This study of Ermengard and her world is an original and valuable contribution to our knowledge of an admirable woman -- in the end an immensely sad figure- and of the endangered culture in which she lived. . . . Cheyette says he meant this book 'to be read, not consulted, ' and as a common reader with an amateur interest in that culture and its long shelf life, which continues into our own time and literature, I am indebted to him."
