Andreas the Chaplain

(1174 - 1238)

Little is known about Andreas the Chaplain other than that he was a French cleric—perhaps a chaplain at the court of Marie, countess of Champagne, daughter of Eleanor of Aquitaine. A child of the twelfth-century renaissance, he lived during the period in which major works of Aristotle were rediscovered and the scholastic liberal arts were revitalized. He is best known for his writings on the art of courtly love.
