In Memory of Pierre Bec

Poitiers, France: There were wonderful tributes this day, Friday, September 12, 2014, in memory of the marvelous Pierre Bec, teacher, scholar, medievalist, poet, and good friend to so many of us. Yes, there were some tears, but also much celebration as we contemplated the richness of his intellectual and personal legacy, and as we shared memories of the many years he lived among us. May his seemingly limitless erudition, his boundless curiosity, and his intense love of life continue to inspire us.
