Livre d'Enanchet
 
 
Summary

Written in the first half of the thirteenth century, the Livre d'Enanchet is a didactic treatise structured into three parts: the first addresses the positions and statuses of various orders of society, the second includes a universal history, and the third an ars amandi. Derived from mostly Latin sources - such as Peter Comestor’s Historia scolastica, Andreas Capellanus’s De amore and Boncompagno da Signa’s Rota Veneris, the text presents the material in the framework of a father addressing his son.
