520    "Same-sex marriage is a hotly debated topic in the United 
       States, and the world, today. From the tenor of most 
       discussions, however, it would be easy to conclude that 
       the idea of marriage between two people of the same sex is
       a uniquely contemporary phenomenon. Not so, argues Gary 
       Ferguson in this remarkable book about a same-sex wedding 
       ceremony in sixteenth-century Rome. The case in question 
       involved a group of mostly Spanish and Portuguese men, 
       arrested and executed in Rome in 1578, said to have 
       performed same-sex wedding ceremonies in one of the city's
       major churches. We know about the incident from a number 
       of sources, including the travel journal of the French 
       essayist Michel de Montaigne. Several substantial 
       fragments of the transcript of the men's trial have also 
       survived, along with copies of their wills. Making use of 
       all these documents, Ferguson brings the story to life in 
       striking detail. He reveals not only the names of the men 
       but also where they lived, how they were employed, and who
       their friends were. In particular, he unearths a 
       surprising amount of detail about the men's sex lives, and
       how others responded to this information, which allows him
       to explore attitudes toward marriage, sex, and gender at 
       the time. Emphasizing the instability of marriage in 
       premodern Europe, Ferguson argues that same-sex unions 
       should be considered part of the institution's complex and
       contested history"--Provided by publisher.
