Sex, Dissidence and Damnation: Minority Groups in the Middle Ages

Couverture
Routledge, 13 sept. 2013 - 212 pages
0 Avis
For the authorities in medieval Europe, dissent struck at the roots of an ordered, settled world. It was to be crushed - initially by reason and argument, eventually by torture. Jeffrey Richards examines the wretched lives of heretics, witches, Jews, lepers and homosexuals and uncovers a common motive for their persecution: sexual aberrance.
