A History of Celibacy

Abbott, Elizabeth
Publisher:  Lutterworth Press
Year Published:  2001  
Pages:  448pp  
Resource Type:  Book

This book, mixing both anthropogy and history traces celibacy during the ages. Citing various cultures (Persian, Chinese, Greek, Roman, Europe in the Middle Ages etc.) she explores the power of celibacy and it's offence (that it is unnatural). The book in essence is a history of civilization from one particular angle. Written with both humour and anger it documents some of the strangeness of the world.
