Was sodomy in early modern Europe the same as modern homosexuality? Did men who had sex with each other in this period regard their behaviour as determining their identity? What was the relationship between the grave sin of sodomy and the homoerotic images that fill Renaissance culture? Addressing such questions, this collection of nine essays includes studies of the representation of sodomy in English historical writing and Jacobean drama, and judicial responses to sodomy in Geneva, Venice and Germany.
