his teenage paramour. Caught in the social context of their era,
these characters became legends in their own time. Their letters
and period art reveal much about the way individuals grappled
with church, state, and secular interests and how this struggle
colored Medieval life. You'll walk away amazed, amused, and enlightened
by this peek into the past. Take away artistamps and mail art
to embellish your own letters and journal entries.
