Suggests that the systematic repression of homosexuality which took root in the 11th century may be more representative of the Catholic Church's power struggle vis-a-vis the more liberal Graeco-Roman ethos than of a true moralistic position and tradition. Also suggests that despite the severe penalties which ensued, exceptions were made to the rule, notably among royalty, and that "illicit and nonprocreative practices" contrary to theological dogma frequently occured. Highly readable, documented and supported by a wealth of previously unknown source material.
