Sex, Dissidence and Damnation by Jeffrey Richards
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


For the authorities in medieval Europe, both secular and ecclesiastical, dissent struck at the roots of an ordered, settled world. To allow a single heretic to escape just punishment would, it was believed, result in the decay and dissolution of the whole structure of society. So dissent was to be extirpated - initially by reason and argument, but before long with increasing savagery: by torture and imprisonment, fire and the sword. In examining the wretched lives of heretics, witches, Jews, lepers and homosexuals, Jeffrey Richards has uncovered a common motive for their persection: supposed sexual aberrance. Scrupulously researched and academically invaluable, this book is also fascinating for anyone who cares about the way society treats its minorities.' Wales on Sunday
