Sex, Dissidence and Damnation: Minority Groups in the Middle Ages (Hardback)Jeffrey Richards (author)
- We can order this
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.
