Productinformatie
This volume investigates the state of same-sex relations in later medieval England, drawing on a remarkably rich array of primary sources from the period that include legal documents, artworks, theological treatises, and poetry. Tom Linkinen uses those sources to build a framework of medieval condemnations of same-sex intimacy and desire and then shows how same-sex sexuality reflected—and was inflected by—gender hierarchies, approaches to crime, and the conspicuous silence on the matter in the legal systems of the period.
