Christianity, Social Tolerance and Homosexuality by John Boswell

Book Description

John Boswell's National Book Award-winning study of the history of attitudes toward homosexuality in the early Christian West was a groundbreaking work that challenged preconceptions about the Church's past relationship to its gay members - among them priests, bishops, and even saints - when it was first published twenty-five years ago. The historical breadth of Boswell's research (from the Greeks to Aquinas) and the variety of sources consulted make this one of the most extensive treatments of any single aspect of Western social history. "Christianity, Social Tolerance, and Homosexuality", still fiercely relevant today, helped form the disciplines of gay and gender studies, and it continues to illuminate the origins and operations of intolerance as a social force.

Books By Author John Boswell

Say This, Not That by John Boswell Say This, Not That, Paperback (September 2010)

Words matter. They can inform, soothe, sting, reverberate, and leave scars. And the wrong words can turn off - literally - the listener, transforming what should be an exchange of information, feelings, and ideas into dead air time. This title offers an effective toolbox that can train anyone to say what he means effectively and powerfully.

Kindness of Strangers by John Boswell Kindness of Strangers, Paperback (November 1998)

This study argues that child abandonment was common among all classes and morally acceptable from antiquity until the Renaissance. Using a variety of sources, Boswell examines the evidence, presenting a history of the abandoned child and illustrating the changing meaning of family.
