FOOTNOTES-2

Walter, however, in a recent and thorough study of Robert of 

Arbrissel (_Die Ersten Wanderprediger Frankreichs_, Theil I), 

shows that there is no reason whatever to doubt the authentic and 

reliable character of the impugned letters. 

 

The early Christian legends of chastity had, however, their successors. 

_Aucassin et Nicolette_, which was probably written in Northern France 

towards the end of the twelfth century, is above all the descendant of the 

stories in the _Acta Sanctorum_ and elsewhere. It embodied their spirit 

and carried it forward, uniting their delicate feeling for chastity and 

purity with the ideal of monogamic love. _Aucassin et Nicolette_ was the 

death-knell of the primitive Christian romance of chastity. It was the 

discovery that the chaste refinements of delicacy and devotion were 

possible within the strictly normal sphere of sexual love.
