About this book


This study examines the relationship between Catholicism and homosexuality and between historical homophobia and contemporary struggles between the Church and the homosexual? Moving from the Gothic to the late Twentieth-century, from Europe to America, it interrogates what is queer about Catholicism and what is modern about homosexuality.
