Andersen-Wyman?s book undoes most scholarly uses and understandings of De amore by Andreas Capellanus. By offering a reading promoted by the text itself, Andersen-Wyman shows how Andreas undermines the narrative foundations of sacred and secular institutions and renders their power absurd. Her book offers the best explanation yet for why Andreas?s was one of only two books condemned by Bishop Tempier in 1276: the tools Andreas offers his readers, as well as what Andreas suggests about his own desire and what should be the place of women in society, could make his book dangerous in almost any era.
