From pre-Christian times, it has troubled, terrified and inspired the western mind and culture. 1 Sodom and Gomorrah, the Cities of the Plain, were supposedly destroyed because of it; Paul warned the early Christians against it; leading scholars of the Church wrote eloquently opposing it; English kings were assassinated on suspicion of it; and countless common people have been victimized, blackmailed and persecuted because of it. Yet at the same time it has been the channel for some of humankind’s most moving stories of love and affection, and the spark for poetry, painting and sculpture – a fountain of that which we would most readily call good and worthwhile. Some of our greatest civilizations have allowed, even encouraged, an overt homosexual component.’ Basil Blackwell, Oxford and New York ; L’immagine se disponibile, corrisponde alla copia in vendita.
