1. Abelard and his Pupil Heloise (1882). Edmund Leighton (English, 1853–1922). Oil on canvas.

    "Under the pretext of study we spent our hours in the happiness of love, and learning held out to us the secret opportunities that our passion craved. Our speech was more of love than of the books which lay open before us; our kisses far outnumbered our reasoned words."

    Uhh Abelard was actually a major douchebag who eventually got castrated for his relationship with Heloise but this...
