VINE VOICEon 8 December 2003
This collection of essays covers an impressively wide variety of medieval sexual attitudes and practices, including canon law, castration, lesbianism and cross-dressing. The essay on medieval English literature leaves something to be desired, as it all but ignores Old English prose, thereby dismissing a vast amount of useful material on gender roles and religious sexuality. Furthermore, some of authors seem to suffer somewhat from a need to apply modern categories and moralities to the medieval situation, and the reader must bear this in mind in order to get the most out of the collection. Nonetheless, a thoughtful, interesting and well-ordered book which provides a much-needed insight into medieval sexuality.
