    Aelred of the Spiritual Friendship is one of the most important treatises on friendship to emerge from teh middle ages. Working within a tradition that dates back to Cicero and other classical authors, Aelred (ca. ) discusses friendship from the perspective of Christian theology. Friendship is a relationship like no other. Unlike our family, we choose our friends. Unlike marriage, friendship is tenuous—we can end a friendship at any time. But should friendship be so free and unconstrained? Although our culture tends to pay more attention to romantic love, marriage, family, and other forms of community, friendship is a genuine love in its own right. This eloquent book.
