Summary
Love Between Women examines female homoeroticism and the role of women in the ancient Roman world. Employing an unparalleled range of cultural sources, Brooten finds evidence of marriages between women and establishes that condemnations of female homoerotic practices were based on widespread awareness of love between women."An extraordinary accomplishment. ... A definitive source for all future discussion of homoeroticism and the Bible." Mary Rose D'Angelo, Harvard Gay & Lesbian Review
