A History of Celibacy
Abbott, ElizabethPublisher: Lutterworth Press
Year Published: 2001
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.
