- This volume analyses the importance of ancient Rome in the construction of post-classical homosexual identities. Essays by leading and emerging scholars explore the contested history of responses to Roman homosexuality, in areas including literature, the visual arts, popular culture, scholarship, and pornography. Much has been written about the contribution of ancient Greek homosexuality to modern discourses of homosexuality, but this volume argues that Rome has been largely overlooked in this respect.
