Same-sex Unions in Premodern Europe

Author: John Boswell
ISBN: 9780679432289

Both highly praised and intensely controversial, this brilliant book produces dramatic evidence that at one time the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches not only sanctioned unions between partners of the same sex, but sanctified them--in ceremonies strikingly similar to heterosexual marriage ceremonies. "From the Trade Paperback edition."
