Description - Christianity, Social Tolerance and Homosexuality by John Boswell

John Boswell's study of the history of attitudes toward homosexuality in the Christian West seeks to challenge received opinion and preconceptions about the Church's past relationship to its gay members, among whom were priests, bishops and even canonized saints. The historical breadth of Boswell's research (from the Greeks to Aquinas) and the variety of sources consulted (legal, literary, theological, artistic, and scientific) make this an extensive treatment of any single aspect of Western social history. The text is the product of ten years of research and analysis of records in a dozen languages, and aims to opens up a new area of historical inquiry and help elucidate the origins and operations of intolerance as a social force.
