Quick Reference

A pupil of Abelard at the Paraclete (a monastery founded for his students), Hilary became known for his goliardic verse (with some love poems addressed to boys) and his three miracle plays in rhymed Latin. It is possible that he travelled to Angers and had contacts with England. It is believed Hilary died in Paris at the convent of St-Victor. See alsodrama.
