Description - Same-sex Desire in Victorian Religious Culture by Frederick S. Roden, AOJN

This text examines the role of Christian history in 19th-century definitions of homosexual identity. Roden charts the emergence of the modern homosexual in relation to religious, not exclusively sociological, discourses. Positing Catholicism as complementary to classical Greece, he challenges the separatism of sexuality and religion in critical practice. Moving from Newman and Rossetti, to Hopkins, Wilde, and Michael Field amongst others, the book brings together gay studies and theology in Victorian literature.
