Professor of Art Véronique Plesch contributed an essay for the newly released Cultures of Compunction in the Medieval World: Emotion, Contrition and Penitence in the Middle Ages. Her chapter is titled “Peter’s Three Tears” and was inspired by a comment made by a participant during a trip she led for Colby alumni. In fact, she acknowledges this person on the first page of the book. “I am grateful to Allen Jenkins for drawing my attention to Peter’s three tears during our visit to Notre-Dame des Fontaines in October 2017.” Plesch also contributed the photo that adorns the book’s cover.
