Title:
Fornicating with nuns in fifteenth-century Bologna
Authors:
Dean, Trevor
Abstract:
I begin with the prosecution of a spicer in 1432 for abducting a nun. I present this first of all as the story of a trial, before proceeding to examine the experience of the nun and the gender relations in the event. The trial is then contextualised by reference to other similar cases, the law on sexual relations with nuns, the instable history of nunneries, the place of the nunnery in the local sexual economy, and the significance of this Bolognese material for Guido Ruggiero's 'culture of illicit sexuality'.
