Christian Intolerance of Homosexuality.
Greenberg, David F.; Bystryn, Marcia H.
American Journal of Sociology, v88 n3 p515-48 Nov 1982
The broad acceptance of homosexuality in the ancient Mediterranean world ended in late antiquity with the spread of an asceticism hostile to all forms of sexual pleasure. Repression began as a consequence of organizational reforms in the church and class conflict associated with the commercialization of medieval society. (Author/AM)
