How sexual orientation was expressed and understood in ancient Greece and Rome and how Christianity changed perceptions.
FREE OPEN LECTURE
Long before modern science confirmed the individuals are naturally born with different sexual orientations, people were aware of homosexuality and created different cultural responses to the phenomenon. We’ll look at how homosexuality was understood in ancient Greece and Rome and the ways some expressions were received with acceptance while others were met with intolerance in Antiquity.
