About the author (1979)

John of Salisbury learned about court life as secretary first to Thibaud, and then to Thomas a Becket, both archbishops of Canterbury. He later became bishop of Chartres. His books are urbane and clearly written, providing a cultured view of the upper-class society of the twelfth century.
