|First of all I want to thank you for the Introduction aux devoirs des coeurs [by Bahya] which has arrived. I really like it very much indeed. I thank you also for your offprint. I was especially interested in the one about Gilbert Crispin, about which you had told me. It fits with my own ideas about Anselm and his school. I have done two articles on Anselm, in which I agree with Barth that to call him an "apologist" is really absurd. I cannot imagine why Schmitt, the editor of Anselm's works, is so silly as to insist that Anselm is writing apologetics. Your thesis on Crispin seems to me exactly right.
