Bernadette J. Brooten examines female homoeroticism and the role of women in the ancient Roman world. Employing an unparalleled range of cultural sources, from magical spells and medical texts to astrological horoscopes, Brooten finds evidence of marriages between women and discusses the surgical procedure of clitoridectomy as a method of controlling female homoeroticism.

Love Between Women examines female homoeroticism and the role of women in the ancient Roman world. Employing an unparalleled range of cultural sources, Brooten finds evidence of marriages between women and establishes that condemnations of female homoerotic practices were based on widespread awareness of love between women. "An extraordinary accomplishment. . . . A definitive source for all future discussion of homoeroticism and the Bible."Mary Rose D'Angelo, Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review "[Brooten's] convincing analysis . . . not only profoundly reshapes our understanding of the past, but it should also shape the way in which that past, particularly the early Christian texts with their immense normative weight, will be used for the future."Anne L. Clark, Journal of Lesbian Studies " Love Between Women gives contemporary debates on sexuality a carefully delineated past. It boldly insists upon a different future, one informed by history but not tyrannized by it."Susan Ackerman, Lambda Book Report "Fascinating, provocative and lucid. . . . Brooten has made a fundamental contribution to women's and gender studies, gay and lesbian studies, and classics."Elizabeth A. Castelli, Women's Review of Books Winner of the Lambda Literary Award for Best Lesbian Studies Book, 1997 History History eBook, University of Chicago Press

24x16,5 cm. XXII, 412 S. Half cloth (ruby) with copper, shiny back title in very good condition. Jacket very easily used. Good. Inside very clean. (...) Contrary to the common scholarly notion that early Christian sexual ethics were fundamentally different from those the surrounding culture, Brooten contends that early Christians and their Roman neighbors shared a view of the "natural" order of society, in which women were passive, submissive partners to men. This profound rethinking of the ancient Roman world is a deeply thoughtful contribution to the cultural history of gender and sexuality, essential for students of women`s studies, the classics, gay and lesbian studies, and religion.

The last two decades have produced an enormous amount of literature about the role of male homosexuality in the classical and early Christian world--but almost nothing about lesbianism. Bernadette Brooten's Love Between Women remedies that oversight with a vengeance. Brooten's extraordinarily well-researched and breathtakingly argued book proves that female homoeroticism was well-established and thriving 2,000 years ago. Equally as important are her analyses of 19th century and contemporary scholars who have re-closeted lesbianism through ignorance and prejudice. Love Between Women is a breakthrough book that radically changes how we think about history and sexuality. christian books and bibles,christianity,church history,gay and lesbian,gay and lesbian studies,gender and sexuality,history,humanities,medieval,nonfiction Medieval, University of Chicago Press
