Summary These essays examine the relationship between Catholicism and homosexuality. Moving from the Gothic to the late Twentieth-century, from Britain to America and France, Catholic Figures, Queer Narratives interrogates what is queer about Catholicism and what is modern about homosexuality. The result is a radical revision of the sacred - in life and art, the body and devotion.
